Meander Emerald Green Cushion 55x55

DESCRIPTION

The Albers Foundation, in collaboration with Christopher Farr Cloth have created a range of fabrics based on the interlocking pattern featured in Albers’ Meander screenprints from 1969-71. Albers began making prints in the 1960. In this series of prints bright colours and their grey undershadow record a complex and meandering path. These patterns bring to mind the labyrinth floors found in The Basilica of St. Quentin and Chartres Cathedral in France.

Size: 55x55cm, comes with feather inner.

  • Anni Albers (1899-1994), was a German-American textile designer, weaver, writer and printmaker who studied at the Bauhaus School of Design in Germany and was a founding faculty member of the acclaimed Black Mountain College in North Carolina. Anni and her husband Josef, the celebrated abstract painter and art educator, were pioneers of twentieth-century modernism. Anni experimented by using new materials for weaving to produce abstract designs.

ABOUT the MAKER

Rachel Carley Design

Rachel Carley established a ceramic design practice during 1994 in Auckland, New Zealand, after completing her PhD in Architecture. The Rachel Carley Design ceramic collection contains a range of elegant and eclectic forms, which are designed to collaborate with food. The pieces can be mixed and matched in a multitude of ways, introducing variation to the dining experience.

A sustainable imperative informs Rachel's design practice. The ceramics are proudly made in New Zealand, and have become collectables, so are less likely to be part of a disposable ‘throwaway’ culture. They are designed to be used through breakfast, elevenses, lunch, and dinner, becoming intimately connected with the eating rituals and tea & coffee ceremonies of everyday life.

Our new Rachel Carley Design cushion collection celebrates luxury textiles, each produced in collaboration with fine artists. Designed to act as fine artworks for your sofa, these cushions celebrate colour, pattern and texture and each has a particular story to tell.
