Pattern Report | Apartamento 03 Fall 2016




Remembered by many as critic of her own work, Lee Krasner would commonly cut up or destroy her paintings and collage them into a new format. One can see a bit of her perfectionism in the prints at Apartamento 03‘s latest collection.

Arts & Culture | Historic Brazilian Tiles



via here.

According to  from Designmilk: Surface designer Renata Rubim partnered with Oca Brasil on a series of wooden tiles that aim to revisit distinct periods of Brazilian design history: Tribal, Modernist, and Colonial. The Brasiliana collection tiles come in the traditional Portuguese tile size, measuring 20x20cm (7.87×7.87 inches), and are made of eucalipt or Valchromat in various color ways, each with their own personality.


The tribal tiles seek to celebrate the time before Portuguese colonialism when indigenous cultures created patterns on textiles.




The colonial era of Brazil’s history is characterized by elaborate and intricate designs which can be found in the traditional tile work of Portugal.


The Modernist tiles reflect the influence of Burle Marx (Brazilian landscape architect) who set the tone for the Modern movement in Brazil.Brasiliana-Tile-Collection-8-modernist-600x596Modern

We stumbled across the work of Melbourne based textile designer, Cassie Byrnes, here and are loving her organic style patterns! Graduating only a year ago from university, Byrnes has racked up an impressive collection of clients and work. She cites her hometown in tropical North Queensland for the bright and colorful influence on her designs.

Interiors | Wooden Geometry


German designer Elisa Strozyk creates wooden works of art! Crafting beautiful tiles out of wood she groups together the triangular shapes, creating intricate geometric patterns. The flexible nature of the design allows you to form her rugs and table runners into intriguing crumpled works of art or lay them flat, ensuring endless hours of fun!

Loving these polymer clay wall sculptures by Angela Schwer, which she assembles from hundreds of perfectly formed clay pieces. The detail in these is amazing and the compositions are like coral reefs or succulent gardens–two of my favorite things.

Her inky hand drawn illustrations take hours to complete giving viewers plenty to visually explore. Starting off as pencil sketches, the drawings slowly come to life in black and white while spanning several sheets of paper. Read more about Johanna’s humble beginnings here or view more of her work here.

Interiors | These Walls


These Walls – a paper and textile design studio based in Queensland – has created a lovely collection of wallpaper, cushions, greetings cards and ceramic prints! Each of the company’s designs are handmade by Sara Hingle. The artist describes the aesthetic as “…contradictory on many levels. It is neither feminine nor masculine – perhaps it is a little of both. It is understated and yet unique. It is relaxed and earthy but still, it is strong. And lastly, it takes inspiration from the contrasting visual worlds of structured minimalism, textured boheme and ethnic pattern.” Sounds like a great combination and it seems to be working wonderfully!
