Projects
  • MIX 'N' MATCH 17 COLLECTION  \\  CUBA
    MIX 'N' MATCH 17 COLLECTION \\ CUBAIn June 2016 we travelled to Cuba visiting the sites of Havana Trinidad, Cienfuegos and Varadero. The rustic charms of Havana still remain and we wanted to capture the old history before it all changes. Trinidad is a magical place full of bright colour around every street corner with snippets of broken tiles, decaying man made surfaces with contrasting patterns. Cuba is surface designer's dream as there is so much to see and record through drawing and photography.  The Mix ‘n’ Match 17 wallpaper

  • HYUNDAI LIVART \\ KOREA
    HYUNDAI LIVART \\ KOREACollaborating with Hyundai Livart in Korea, we worked on a challenging pattern project. The brief involved designing a series of patterns that could be translated into stitch onto mattresses for the 2016 Ensleep Collection. Livart requested a Scandinavian feel to the patterns, keeping them minimal and cool.  Overall we created four mattresses patterns which were translated into stitch over a six month period. Each one is individual adding a quirky design element through shape.
  • KITCHENWALLS \\ NETHERLANDS
    KITCHENWALLS \\ NETHERLANDSWorking closely on a designer range we created four pattern splash backs for KitchenWalls based in the Netherlands. They are available to purchase direct from Behangfabriek. Due to the new and revolutionary material which is heat and water resistant, reusable and easy to clean the wallpapers can be used within a bedroom, bathroom and living room. 
  • BLIK \\ LA
