Hot is an elegant upholstery fabric with a robust and weighty feel, designed by Giulio Ridolfo. It is made from cotton and viscose, which absorb colour differently during manufacturing. This combination of materials creates a subtle yet dynamic organic play across the surface of the material.
The fabric, which is ideal for soft seating in private homes, is very lively: from a distance Hot appears unicoloured, but as you get closer it’s appearance changes according to the light conditions and the perspective of the viewer. The play in the material is created randomly through the production process, so every piece is individual.
The versatile colour palette is inspired by precious stones. The 22 quiet and vibrating colours capture the ‘special light inside’ solid and transparent gemstones: the scale blends ‘quartz’ tones with aquamarine and topaz, as well as marble nuances with amber and moss agate.
Giulio Ridolfo’s methodology and colour compositions are far from traditional. The designer bases his work around the expression of an attitude or a choice. This results in the development of highly personal and distinctive colour palettes.
