Antonio Marras + Saba: distance and affinity

When life weaves together the threads of pathways seemingly far away


Lightness of gesture and the poetic sensibility of Saba's colour palette find numerous points of intersection with Antonio Marras's art, who for the occasion of the Salone del Mobile re-interprets the iconic collection of New York couches and lounge chairs, drawing from the charming textile combinations from his pre- collection for autumn-winter 2018/19.


Saba through its slight re-adaption of Marras's prints for furnishings, re- proposes maxi flowers, pied-de-poule, tartan and hunting scenes printed on velvet fabrics, linen and woollen cloth. A part of the collection will be available for purchase exclusively at the Nonostante Marras' space, where there are a series of one-off pieces, diverging with unique painting renditions by the designer.

Saba will also leave its signature on the Marras temporary bistrot with 60 New York chairs in ecru linen, hand painted as if they were canvases. The performance and making of, behind the scenes of the project will be documented with a video made by the Sardinian director, Giulia Achenza, winner of the first edition of the Milan Fashion Film Festival
