Celebrating their 180th Year as an ‘ensemblier décorateur’ Rinck announce their collaboration with Fromental and the launch of the hand-painted silk wallcovering ‘The Classicist Sketchbook.’
The collaboration between the two houses developed through a shared passion for the history of art and craftsmanship. Understanding that historic references bring depth and longevity to a design, Rinck’s president Valentin Goux drew inspiration from the company’s woodcarving studio and the large-scale draftsman’s sketches of decorative molds used in their interior projects. Rendered with two different coloured lines to illustrate the depth of the mold, the sketches express the size and detailing of ornamentation in the wood and in bronze casts. Working with Rinck’s textile designer Bertille Goux, the original sketches were redrawn and then placed across a repeat of three panels creating the effect of a page from a designer’s sketchbook.
