150 Years of Matisse Celebrated With Wallpaper Collection

MuralsWallpaper has launched a collection of cut out wallpaper designs in celebration of 150 years since the birth of Henri Matisse.

The look, colour palette and design approach of the Naive Shapes collection is livable, plays on current colour and design trends, and reflects the simplicity and joyous emotion of Matisse’s own work.

IMG_0073-Web.jpg

The Naive Shapes collection celebrates 150 years of Matisse, taking inspiration from his papiers découpés (paper cutouts). The world-famous painter was born 31st December, 1869.

These candid wallpaper creations by MuralsWallpaper mirror the playfulness of a method that Matisse described as 'drawing with scissors' and 'cutting directly into colour'. 

The crafty cut outs have a nostalgic quality, conjuring up memories of creating paper collages as a child. They embody the fun and focus of spending hours cutting out paper shapes and arranging them in just the right places, resulting in something visually appealing and personal.

Matisse-Blue-Lifestyle-Web.jpg

A year of Matisse

Henri Matisse invented a new medium with his cut out style, and using this he produced some of his most popular works.

Matisse believed that everyone retains a childlike sense of naiveté, no matter how much they study and learn. In the last years of his life, the artist found freedom in creating cut out art, which brought feelings of balance, simplicity and serenity.

Jagged-Lifestyle-Web.jpg

MuralsWallpaper's Matisse-inspired collection aims to echo this naive part of the mind that Matisse speaks of, which is why the designs are hand-made with spontaneous shapes and charming, honest imperfections.

MuralsWallpaper will be releasing two modern mural collections celebrating Matisse's 150th birthday this year with designs that are evokative of his cut out art; also incorporating trending earthy tones and pops of cobalt blue. The second set of designs will launch in September and continue the celebration of Matisse's life and most influential work.

Tom Dixon x Ikea at RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Design Research Studio, the design and innovations agency at the heart of Tom Dixon, has partnered with IKEA to imagine the future of urban farming.

As part of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019, they have designed and realised an experimental model for growing plants in the urban environment.

Tom Dixon and IKEA’s garden, entitled Gardening will Save the World will explore the importance of sustainable growing, looking at the contrast of the hyper-natural and hyper-tech.

The garden will demonstrate how people can contribute to the movement of growing food at home and make a difference to reducing food waste, as well as communicating the beauty and functional importance of horticulture, through both traditional knowledge and the latest in growing innovation.

Tom says, 'As part of the Chelsea Flower Show, we have designed and realised an experimental model for growing plants in the urban environment. Aiming to give back to cities and create productive landscapes within urban zones, the garden includes a raised modular landscape with edible and medicinal plants and an enclosed based garden fuelled by hydroponic systems and controllable lighting.’

TD_Chelsea Flower Show_01.jpg

The garden will be split into two levels and will feature over 4,000 plants. The base layer will be a horticultural laboratory where hydroponic technology is implemented, and the raised garden will be a botanic oasis with a natural aesthetic for visitors to immerse themselves in.

During the media preview, the exhibition will also offer an exclusive look at some of the first prototypes that Tom Dixon has designed on urban growing, which will be available globally at IKEA stores in 2021.

After Chelsea Flower Show, the garden will be donated to the charity Participatory City and moved to Barking and Dagenham in East London.

Handmade, Artisan Objects in an Array of Materials from Oggetto

Oggetto's collection boasts an array of rustic, artisan items - where the quirks and inconsistencies of each piece establish a bond between the creator and consumer. It unifies objects of many materials, all with one thing in common - they've been assembled, woven, thrown, or blown by hand. Whether it's a wooden stool, a woven lampshade or a porcelain teapot, each item has a focus on individuality and employing historic processes that ensure quality, longevity and craftsmanship.

Where some would see a minor, uneven lip of a mug, or an ever-so-slightly wonky leg of a stool - Oggetto see the time and thought that has gone into the production of an object - each and every mark highlighting the joy of an individual act of making.

[oggetto] Black fish trap pendant light, £75, candle holder, £20, Chesil dining table, from £2,150, ceramic blue carafe, £48, woven placemats, £5.50.jpg

There'll be no need to book high tea anywhere else when your crockery looks this good. 

The pink teapot is the refined, adult upgrade from the dream childhood tea party. Made in England from vitrified earthenware, each pot differs slightly in colour and form as a result of its handmade production. 

This terracotta mug, handmade in Southern India, is the end result of a fair trade initiative to secure employment for artisans from disadvantaged backgrounds.

These organically shaped bamboo pendant lights have been handmade in Indonesia, drawing inspiration from traditional Indonesian fish traps. Their artisanal production is consistent with Oggetto's emphasis on simple, considered pieces that ensure long-standing skills and trades continue to thrive. 

The slight gaps in the bamboo produce a cosy, distinctive light which is cast around the room. The larger two are perfect for creating ambient mood-lighting above a dining table, while the smaller of the three would make a cosy, bedtime companion hung above a bedside table.

Exotic New Homewares From A New Tribe

From their Chatsworth Road store in London, A New Tribe brings together an eclectic, curated mix of interiors objects and textiles from across the globe – representing countries like Morocco, the USA, India, and as far east as Japan. As well as featuring homeware from lands afar, they also celebrate talent closer to home, stocking artists, designers, and makers from London and elsewhere in the UK. Everything in their store is sourced from independent designers and small brands, and selected for the ethos and care that goes into each item, as well as the design. If you’re into handmade and small batch production, this is the place for you.
 
A New Tribe are also proudly home to ‘The Rug Trade’, a one-stop-shop for all your Boucherouite, Azilal and Beni Ourain needs. It includes rare vintage finds, and newly designed rugs all made by hand using traditional techniques in Morocco.  

You'd be forgiven for thinking that everything here was made far away in exotic lands - reminiscent of goods sold on ancient trade routes. While some do indeed hale from North Africa, Morocco in particular, others are sourced closer to home from London and Bristol - who would guess? 

Ella Jones is the master of selecting items that radiate a worldly feel, and placing genuine antique pieces amongst them that have been discovered and brought from overseas - completing the illusion. Amongst the Moroccan gems sit treasures from London-based Milo Made, as well as ceramics made by Sophie Alda who resides in Bristol. 

Morocco

Ella needed extra baggage-allowance to bring all of these goodies home, fresh from the Souks of Morocco. The selection oozes decorative and ornate decadence, with hand painted pattern-work and intricately carved detailing featured throughout. There's also a smattering of utility here, afforded by the rattan storage containers that come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Even the carved wooden stool provides a perfect vantage point for some of your potted plants!

London

Nestled in the South-East corner of the exotic island-nation that is England, you'll find the bustling city of London. These abstract, clay face planters and mug come from the ceramics studio Milo Made, who are based here. Sip your morning coffee while enjoying a fresh, floral display on table. 

The sculptural, ceramic vessels below are hand built and would make decadent vases or candle holders. Made by Haar East, otherwise known as Sarah Jeffrey, who is based in East London. 

Bristol

Head west and you'll find the port city of Bristol, where ceramicist Sophie Alda calls home. These blush pink and vibrant blue 'rocket' vases would look equally at home in one of the palaces of Marrakech. 

The wide, stable bottom tapers up into a narrower opening at the top, still allowing room to display some greenery.

‘When I met Nature Squared co-founders Paul Hoeve and Lay Koon Tan, I knew we were kindred spirits as soon as I heard their story and realised how passionate they are about nurturing craft.

Lee Broom's Park Life Show Debuts New Eclipse Collection

Lee Broom has created one of his most significant landmark exhibitions to date with ‘Park Life’. Presented with Space Furniture in Australia, the showcase is set within the urban surroundings of an underground car park. The 4,000 square feet presentation is the largest show Lee Broom has created.

Lens Flair Chess Board

Lens Flair Chess Board

The British designer has transformed the industrial car park and created a contemporary interpretation of a traditional garden park.  ‘Park Life’ takes the form of a maze, which guides guests on a poetic journey of discovery through hidden passageways, featuring 16 tableaus and vignettes showcasing the brand’s lighting, furniture and accessories in a whole new light.

The exhibition is inspired by the pleasure gardens of the 18th century which were laid out with mazes and miniature waterways.  These were the places to be seen and to see the latest in art, architecture, music and illuminations.  In much the same way that visitors were entertained in pleasure gardens centuries ago, this modernist interpretation creates a sense of escapism, amusement and drama for which Lee Broom’s shows are best-known for.
