The Collezione Magic [Magic Collection] designed by Diego Chilò, an architect and designer from Vicenza, is part of the Moret research aimed at identifying new horizons for contemporary carpets, seen as bearers of ideas, universal dreams and poetry. Diego Chilò brought his experience as an industrial designer, stimulating research into innovative techniques and special finishes. This has led to the creation of the Mani, Impronte, Reale and Sistema carpets, which offer designs with strong symbolism, combining yarns such as wool, viscose, pure silk and fine linen. A special metallic yarn in gold, silver and bronze versions identifies the symbolic shapes and illuminates the colours chosen by Chilò, which range from various shades of grey to blue, from Bordeaux red to black. The Collezione Magic thus proposes a new material and chromatic complexity for the Moret carpet, enhanced by the low-relief effects obtained through the modulation of the heights of the different yarns. "The search for a trait-sign is fundamental for me. I have always sketched ideas on blank sheets of paper, still thoughts-images that are often the result of an intuition, a feeling, a fantasy. In a certain sense, it is my hands that decide: through visionary-intuitive manual dexterity I reproduce some of the images amongst the many that quickly flow in front of me, choosing them instinctively, without logic or commercial strategies. It's the simplicity of the form that attracts me and leads me naturally to the end result." Diego Chilò
