Using influences from ancient artisan pottery techniques Calico Wallpaper unveils its new collection at the London Design Festival 2016.
Calico has long been recognised as one of the masters in hand painted wallpaper. Drawing from ancient arts of Suminagashi and Ebru, then mixed with new technologies , they push the boundaries of wallpaper design, creating truly unique finishes. In past years we have seen the watery hues of their Fragments collection, stared in awe at their Calico collection and now they have done it again. We present to you, Satori.
True to Calico ‘s fashion, Satori takes inspiration from Kintsugi, an traditional Japanese method of pottery repair. Naturally blemished watercolour is interjected with bold interjections of metallic lines, which appear to flow slowly from above. Printed on metallic leaf, the collection is one of the company’s most elegant to date. Satori embodies the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi, embracing the flawed in a bid to create wallpaper perfection.
