Middle Eastern Geometry
Monday, 15 August 2016
Abstract shapes and traditional geometric patterns found in Arabian architecture are making a mark. Interior occasionals and accessories inspired by the fluid geometry of this vibrant culture can subtly enrich contemporary spaces without the need for heavy archetypal rugs or textiles.
A unique alternative to wall art, the squared form and curved edges are complimented with Arabic style screen printing. Variations in size, patterns and colours gives rise for the opportunity to play with unique compositions. Neutral walls and the clean lines of the Sipario Sideboard illustrate a culturally uplifted space without imposing an overtly bohemian feel.
