Exteta is proud to announce the latest joint project with the French label Jacquemus, launched on April 17th 2023 as part of a series of exclusive collaborations.
The two brands partnered to launch a special re-edition of Gae Aulenti’s renowned Locus Solus collection.
The series hails from Gae Aulenti’s 1960s pop production and combines strong lines with vintage charm, enhancing harmony and versatility in space. Gaetana Emilia Aulenti, commonly known as Gae Aulenti, has been a trailblazing Italian designer, paving the way for international design innovations. She is now remembered for her large-scale projects and the layout in places such as Gare d’Orsay in Paris and Palazzo Grassi in Venice, not to mention the countless awards received.
Design, architecture, and arts have always been a source of inspiration for Simon Porte Jacquemus. With this collaboration, Jacquemus is exploring a broader interior design capsule collection.
“This collaboration with Exteta came naturally and spontaneously. I have always dreamed of developing a furniture line… I’m a great fan of designer chairs and I have collected Gae Aulenti vintage chairs for many years, ever since I saw them in the movie “La Piscine” by Jacques Deray. I wanted to add a Jacquemus touch to the chair, with a yellow striped fabric inspired by 80’s beach mattresses and umbrellas.” – Simon Porte Jacquemus
The full Locus Solus collection will be available in an off-white structure, including cushioned pieces with two different textile finishes: a yellow-striped version and a beige fabric with contrasting hand-sewn stitching.
