about me…

— roberta licini —

knitwear designer and interior stylist

Good design always carries a message… The product will shape us with our idea of the world in which we live: this is the real impact of tangible design…

My playful imagination enlivens the different pieces in the knitwear collection: I got started in designing by thinking about how to use the colours in the motifs reproduced in my blankets, to make them aesthetically pleasing to the eye and wanting to satisfy each person in how the accessories can be comfortable and harmonious.
A reflection of contemporary elegance. An object to live!

With my project, I believe and promote the ‘artistic sartorial value’ (producing even one piece), where knowledge and creativity ‘accompany the complement of furniture, in inviting and durable proposals over time. I like to inspire and influence, following my passions and my knowledge, adapting them to the needs and requests of the customer. The difference of my type of product is in the interpretation of the ‘sweater’ in its ductility and pleasure, not only in the stitch technique but in the design and realize patterns in a harmonic mix of colours and yarns. Study and attention are important in following the various processing stages: from the idea to the construction of the ‘piece’ to obtain a simply valid result!
The reason is that I am grateful to have a sensitivity and passion linked to the world of design and creativity in general, where specifically I can express my intuition and taste in the service of the home accessory, helped by knowledge in the sector textile. I felt the need to build a project of few “pieces”, a “leading” of harmonic vision of the details in the beauty of the set.

Interior Stylist … in home decor, the idea to develop the design concept and the definition of a full details specific style. A support to be able to deepen the stylistic and decorative aspects that contribute to the completion of an interior project created with awareness and competence. The identification of the choices that make up all the elements of the scene is important: design, materials, colours, furnishings, fabrics and the important ‘accessories’.

”a little of history”…
I have a valid background in the fashion field and I collaborated with important brands such a knitwear designer for both men’s and woman’s collections. My passion and aesthetic sense combined with my technical capabilities, gave me visibility in the world of ‘knitwear fashion’. I started my project in 2013, I created the brand ‘lr’ roberta licini with a knitted home accessories collection: blankets and cushions. The study of design and materials research are done in my ‘Atelier house’ in Biella (Piedmont, Italy), known by the textile sector lovers for the production of high quality wool. The finishing process through execution of the product in its different phases is made in Treviso (Veneto region), in a historic knitwear factory. For my specific studies, I attended ‘The Accademy of fashion and costume’. The curiosity and interest in the history of art and architecture, led me to live this new experience, enriching my sources of inspiration, especially drawing on historical periods such as the 400’s (Renaissance) and the 900’s (Modern Art), to the books of ‘Graphic Arts’ and to the forms of interpretation that the human being makes of nature…
