trove wallpaper : nature + motion

10.09.2009
trove wallpaper is simply stunning.   the founders, jee levin and randall buck have found a way to bring each paper to life through the organic and asymmetrical arrangement of a single natural motif.   my favorites are the birds evoking hitchcock,  the moths from a hot summer night and the various wing typologies lifting to the heavens.  these fantastical designs are further enhanced by the simple color choices which range from subtle to saturated.

indi and ara are new acquisitions to the permanent collection at the cooper-hewitt national design museum (one of my favorite museums).  also to note, the patterns are developed on the computer, printed in-house on archival paper and treated with non-toxic wax-based coating–making them both eco-friendly and recyclable.
