The new SKY collection by Irina Neacsu evokes the emotion of idyllic frames inspired both by nature and by the urban landscapes of Romania. The series represents the development of a newly charted direction in the creation of thecraftlab: the home & decorating items are now being personalized by the means of digital prints of Irina Neacsu’s paintings, inspired by emotions gathered during her travels.
The Sky is the Limit futon, the Daydreamer, Explorer, Silence is Bliss armchairs and the Lost in Tranquillity couch are a contemporary statement about how the home & decorating items can charge us with powerful feelings: “Behind the paintings, there are emotions and memories of my first rounds of mountain biking in Transylvania, of the city of Sibiu during my childhood, of the grandeur of Lake Vidraru or the serenity of the Danube Delta, of the enigmatic Fagaras or the infinity of the sky. And Romania is just the starting point for my travel stories, who knows where the road will take me in the near future. The items in my new collection are an invitation to comfort, peacefulness and introspection”, Irina points out.
At the same time, the collection is completed by items printed with images of fantasy animals, creating a fairy tale scenario also inspired by the hikes under the open sky. In the near future, the paintings which inspired the collection will represent the starting point for the drafting of several smaller collections of fashion accessories and home & decorating items for terrace and garden.
thecraftlab by Irina Neacsu is the only Romanian design brand participating in the winter edition of the famous international fair – Maison&Objet, this being its third participation of this kind. All items belonging to this new collection will be exhibited for the first time in the Côté Déco section (Hall 4), between the 23rd and the 27th of January.
