Over the years Rubelli has created special editions and entered into co-branding agreements with internationally renowned companies in the field of design.
In 2012 Rubelli and Molteni paid tribute to Gio Ponti with "Vivere alla Ponti". On show were re-editions of creations by the great 20th century master: furniture pieces by Molteni and two velvet fabrics by Rubelli.
In 2013, for an exhibition at the Musée du Tissu et de la Décoration in Lyon, Rubelli at the "invitation" of Moroso produced an elaborate brocade, Madame du Barry, later included in the textile collection of the same museum.
In 2019 a highly original interior decoration project saw the most iconic patterns of Rubelli fabrics transposed onto large ceramic slabs, produced by Florim.
There is no lack of prestigious collaborations with the world of fashion.
They include a series of capsule collections of elegant luxury footwear by Santoni with precious lampas and elaborate and refined fabrics by Rubelli and three haute couture dresses, unique pieces designed and produced for the 1600th anniversary of Venice by Alberta Ferretti with three iconic Rubelli silk fabrics.
