Beyond their in-house design team ‘cc-tapis design lab’, notable designer collaborations express the brand’s fascination with colour and new ideas or ways of doing. During this year’s Milan Design Week, cc-tapis presented Italian design research studio FormaFantasma’s collection Telegram, which explored giving a voice to the maker through a series of personal messages woven into them.
FormaFantasma said they like working with cc-tapis because “they get the ideas immediately”. “You can work with a company and a concept, and when you get the idea back, sometimes it can feel like it has lost something in translation,” FormaFantasma founder Simone Farresin said. “Instead, with cc-tapis, it’s the opposite, you give something, and you get something back that is better than what you thought. That is really special.”
