Textile Designer
2019 MakingIn: Public
Pietro Seminelli is Maître d’Art of the fold. This profession did not exist in the field of decoration before this craftsman developed it through experiments for haute couture, scenography. He became the ‘architect of the fold’.

He was established as a new figure of decoration, a specialist in ennobling textile through pleating. Using skilful folding techniques, textile is enriched with fascinating transparent geometries.

These qualities have attracted interior designers such as Peter Marino, Franck Biasi, Thierry Lemaire, who work for demanding customers and major luxury brands. His clientele is growing with private individuals, collectors, gallery owners, museums (Fabrics and Decorative Arts in Lyon, Asian Arts in Nice).
