Geometric and Bespoke Wallpaper and Surface Pattern Design
VIVIENNE WESTWOOD | ITALY
We were invited to take part within the 'New British' installation, which is a special interpretation of the creative campaign devised by 100% Design 2013. One of Britain’s most innovative and distinctive fashion labels, Vivienne Westwood, partnered with 100% Design, the UK’s largest design event, in a unique collaboration featuring some of the best creatives in the Design industry currently working in the UK. The installation launched on the 9th April 2013 at the Vivienne Westwood flagship store in Milan as part of Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Milan Design Week. The ‘New British’ exhibition celebrates the revival of British small-scale high quality furniture and lighting production, showcasing carefully selected range of products spanning a range of designs and producers whose emphasis is on craft techniques and sustainability. Selected by 100% Design and curated with communications designers experts Thomas Matthews, the exhibition reflects a New British confidence in materials and the high quality of workmanship. Often produced using local craftspeople and materials with the application of the latest manufacturing technology, these pieces each reflect a passion for quality, a sustainable and considered approach to form and function, alongside a charm that transcends generations.
IDEAL HOME SHOW | UK
Stylish and contemporary, the Home for Life styled by House Beautiful has been designed for the way we live now and combines multi-functional living areas with private spaces. Jewel wallpaper from the '13' collection was used to decorate the children's bedroom styled by House Beautiful and Pippa Jameson.
"I have known Kirath and her work for a few years now and was blown away by her design style right from the start. We have worked together on some quite high profile projects and her wallpapers are always so well received. She is has been a pleasure to work with and I can't wait to see what the next collection will bring." Pippa Jameson Interiors (September 2015)
Our latest collaboration with Forster Inc features our Fold Green, Tropic and Iso wallpapers which decorate the entryway for the studio. The designs are part of their autumn installation titled 'Liminality'. Forster Inc's mission to design sustainably reflects the way in which our surface pattern design studio loves to work and knew a collaboration would be fantastic. Rachel and her team have expressed a true passion for our patterns, using a designer led approach to create a beautiful feature wall within their studio. The team design offices, commercial and residential spaces with creativity, innovation and flair and we can see how our wallpapers can integrate into future projects with the studio.
"Kirath’s fresh, clean palette and unique use of colour in her wallpaper is like a breath of fresh air to us as designers. Her use of mismatched geometric patterns is both exciting and refreshing – particularly her designs with no repetition, which when applied change from being individual patterns to a whole picture. Beyond this, we love that she wants clients to have fun and ‘break the rule book’ when using her wallpaper, which is exactly how we encourage our clients to approach design, too. We would collaborate with Kirath on a project again any day." (Forster Inc, 2016)
