The curves and counter-curves of the Maeght Foundation in Saint Paul de Vence inspired Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet to create a collection of fabrics and outdoor-indoor furniture animated by Art Deco motifs with muted modernist tones.
The duo likes to move the lines, to cross genres and aesthetics. Since their beginnings in 2007, these decorators, based between Monaco and Paris, have combined the elegance of French classicism with an all-Italian fantasy; we owe them the current revival of the Riviera style.
Accustomed to using outdoor fabrics in their interiors for their technical qualities as much as for their resistance, Humbert & Poyet imagines an in-outdoor collection for the upholstery and wall coverings editor Nobilis.
Creations all in vibrant geometries - scrolls, arcs of circles and sharp stripes - available in a range of desaturated tones (saffron yellow, Mediterranean blue, rust, almond green, gray and white). The patterns are underlined by subtle play on textures; here a loop yarn bordering a spiral, there a garter stitch for a color vibration. Renowned for its traditional know-how combined with technical innovation, Nobilis breathes sophistication and softness into graphics.
