Villa alle Scalette wears Missoni – Trend Mosaic Tile – Italy
Collections, materials, technologies, artistic techniques and formats. A universe of ideas and countless multi-faceted combinations are now visible in the new prestigious headquarters of Trend. The seventeenth-century Villa Rossi, today Villa alle Scalette, situated in the monumental heart of Vicenza.
In 2005 the villa was brought back to its original splendour. Confirming the company sensitivity towards art, the new headquarters restored by the architects Veller for the outside Seventh Century façade and Atelier Mendini
for the contemporary interior style, states the fusion of past and present,
of innovative and decorative solutions representing an exclusive instrument for showing to the passionates of design and architecture the infinite applications of the group materials.
The company actively supports the contemporary art world: it is a member of the Intrapresae Collezione Guggenheim association, and a founding partner of Centro Cultura per l’Arte Contemporanea C4 project. Overseas, it supports Fundaciò Arqueològica Clòs – Museu Egipci de Barcelona.
Many collaborations have been activated with famous exponents of the architectural, design, art and fashion world, including the Missoni family, Patrizia Gucci, Atélier Mendini, Jean Nouvel, Matteo Thun and recently the artistic group of Cracking Art. The resulting creations became part of the brand Trend Up, the creative lab of the group.
