The use of pattern in the world of framing

In the vast and creative panorama of art and design, frames play a crucial role in elevating and enhancing works of art and photographs, giving them an aura of elegance and refinement and creating a bridge between the work and the eye of the viewer who benefits from it, improving artistic communication. The world of frames, in fact, is not just a question of physical support for works: it is above all a fertile ground for creative expression and innovation.

Patterns in frame mouldings

The use of patterns in the finishing of frame mouldings emerges as a distinctive and fascinating element, transforming the frames into real artistic elements capable of enriching and completing the overall aesthetic experience. In this sector, in fact, tradition merges with contemporary creativity to give life to works that capture the eye and stimulate the imagination.

First of all we need to ask ourselves, what is a pattern? The pattern represents an image that is composed through the combination of shapes and colors, forming motifs or designs that are continuously repeated according to a precise order and symmetry.

In the framing sector they take on a crucial role, helping to create visual harmony and a sense of aesthetic pleasure, becoming elements of great importance for strengthening the character of communication.

All about patterns

They are widespread not only in the world of art but in various areas of daily life, from fashion to decoration, and can present a vast range of shapes and styles, from the most complex and detailed to the simplest and most minimalist.

In the digital context, for example, patterns must be modular to correctly adapt to different devices, such as computers, mobile phones or tablets, when used as web page backgrounds. While in the world of architecture they are often used to aesthetically enrich buildings, with patterns that can be observed both inside and outside the buildings.

Imex and the creation of patterns

How do we make patterns for our frame mouldings? In different finishes and sizes, starting from the most important phases, identifying an inspiration or a concept from which to develop a design. Subsequently the drawing is repeated seamlessly and made three-dimensional.

In the past, pyrography rollers originated from hand carving of wood and then moved on to counter-shaping and engraving on metal with manually controlled machines. Each roller was a unique piece, where the slight differences constituted added value. Today, however, patterns are created with special 3D modeling software and numerically controlled carving machines, which ensure maximum precision and ease of replicating the texture.

In our production areas we use roller molds that can directly engrave wood through pressure or shape wood pulp (a mixture of wood flour, glues and solvents); this step is carried out before moving on to painting.

There are many textures and designs that we repeat in our patterns, some that recall nature, others that recall architectural friezes, Arab, African, Spanish, Asian styles. There is no limit to the artistic possibilities of this production solution, nor to the satisfaction of customers who turn to us for our patterned frame rods.
