Tradition and innovation come together in the new REboot collection of artistic cartodesign
Often it is the unexpected encounters that give rise to the most interesting creative ideas. This was the case for Bottega Fagnola, which in 2018 welcomed a university student for an internship – an initiative it has been carrying out regularly for years – the top of the Faculty of Design and Visual Communication at the Polytechnic of Turin.
Meeting this creative young woman with green hair and a lot of inquisitiveness to know our world and our handicraft baggage led to the creation of REboot, the new collection dedicated to those who entrust projects, ideas and drawings to paper. Studied in a thesis and realized for real.
A collection that bridges the gap between past and future, boxmaking tradition and contemporary taste. Created to meet practical and current use needs and with an important research on design and materials, REboot shows that there are ample opportunities to innovate a craft as old as ours and that there is room for the ideas of young talents.
Cartodesign objects for paper lovers of contemporary taste
The inspiration for the REboot collection was the marbling technique, a fascinating technique used in Europe since the 17th century and with even more ancient origins. Revisited thanks to the contamination with digital techniques and adapted to a modern design, marbling has become an original pattern to be printed on the fabric or to be printed on the covers of cartodesign articles.
REboot includes pads, notebooks, diaries and sketchbooks of various sizes, designed for different needs: from the pleasure of carrying a lightweight accessory to take notes to the need for quality and accurate support to organize ideas and projects or give space to creativity with words or drawings.
The materials, both for the internal pages and for the external surfaces, have been selected to suit the use and be durable. The diaries have a light paper but also suitable for the blackest inks, such as those of fountain pens or nibs and brushes of calligraphy exercises. The covers are in book cloth printed with the exclusive pattern or in paperboard with hot stamping.
Like all our handcrafted accessories, the items in the collection are customizable with hot stamping, to make them unique with name, title, date or short dedication on the cover.
REboot is the new gift idea for design lovers, young people and those who love technology without giving up the pleasure of a handmade paper support to keep in your bag, or desk to collect ideas and notes.
Created in Turin at the workshop of Bottega Fagnola, the REboot collection is available at the shop in Via San Tommaso, in the centre of Turin, and online at the new shop on Etsy, with shipments all over the world.
