Nina Kullberg is delighted to announce the launch of two limited edition cushions as part of an exciting collaboration with artist, Hormazd Narielwalla.
Narielwalla is a London-based British Indian artist who creates unique paper collages out of bespoke Savile Row, antique and contemporary tailoring patterns. Freed from their function as templates for clothing, the patterns transform into exciting, vibrant abstract compositions of the human form.
Nina has been an admirer of Narielwalla’s work for sometime now, when she spotted his Love Gardens sculptures at the Saatchi Gallery for the Crafts Council fair for the contemporary object Collect 13. Their rapport grew from this initial meeting to become an ongoing business relationship and friendship, culminating in this collaboration.
Based on an original collage artwork by Narielwalla titled Jazz, the cushions combine soft sophistication with strong, abstract lines. Named New York and Chicago, the cushions (£69) are available in two colourways, Blue Night and Bistro Green, chosen by Nina to complement the colour palate of her signature cushion collection, and reflecting the compositions of Narielwalla’s original collage.
New York and Chicago launch on the 4th May 2017 to coincide with the London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy of Arts, where Hormazd Narielwalla’s unseen lithographs will be launched by Paupers Press following his award at last year’s International Print Biennale, Newcastle.
