Over the past six years, TEXHIBITION has seen the creation of a prototype collection of more than 50 textile designers, with almost 200 different pattern and colour variations, and the collaboration of a number of textile manufacturers. In addition to the home textiles - jacquard and dobby weaving, transfer and digital printing - of textile designers working in a variety of styles, the exhibition also includes unique works. The initiative also aims to foster intergenerational dialogue, with 4 to 5 young designers from the early stages of their careers invited to participate each year, alongside established designers.

His spectacular work is characterised by decorative, generous graphics, humour, sometimes vivid use of colour, sometimes the opposite, with subtle and subdued tones.
