One of our most loved designs, Nizam embodies the global dimension of true creativity: the flower, which dominates the design, was taken from an Aubusson tapestry, is contained by a border inspired by an ancient Indian miniature. From these fragments, Lisa reworked the shapes and colours with pencils and gouache to create a design that evokes the scents of distant journeys with a sense of wonder, to be applied to tablecloths, cushions, curtains and sofa covers.
Our Damascus design originates in the Renaissance of Florence, in 1459: to be precise, in a detail on a Byzantine knight's sleeve, as depicted in a fresco by Benedetto Gozzoli in the Chapel of the Magi. This detail, reinterpreted by Lisa, was then transformed into a opulently colored pattern that manifests in different forms: Damask Stripes, Damask Flower, Dam Dam.
“Pure colour that comes to life as substance, it is weightless and runs, cheerful and gentle, stopping at a central point. It winks and cannot be ignored. These are my tapestries.”
A singular bloom inspired by a fragment of a Japanese print, set within a five-colour striped border, this enchanting design combines the essential contours of its oriental origins with the vivacious colours of Lisa Corti, to create an aesthetic of sophisticated charm.
