Soo Sunny Park weaves an amazing tapestry of ever-changing lights using chain link fence and plexiglass. the large pieces are then installed in an organic manner depending on how they interact with the space and each other. The results are magical!

print for Peter Pilotto

Peter Pilotto’s womeswear collections are always bursting with colorful and energetic prints. So, it was fun to discover Sabine Egler’s site which revealed her involvement in the design process. Working alongside Pilotto and Christopher De Vos for four seasons, Egler created prints in numerous styles from futuristic interpretations to over-scale florals. She has since moved on to Topshop whose print heavy wares will keep her talented eye busy. See more of her work in our ebook, Pattern Design and Beyond or online here.

Commissioned by the Southbank Centre for its summer Festival of Love, the Temple of Agape boldly professes love in neon flare! The temple, designed by Morag Myerscough and Luke Morgan, is a sculptural collection of large hand-painted signs professing words of love. In the spirit of the event the typographic wonderland provides a place for reflection and joy. “The Temple stands proud like a peacock with its giant Martin Luther King quote, expressing the power of love to the world,” say Myerscough and Morgan. “Inside its heart is calm and dappled with light for contemplating complex emotions, a place that can transform with Love expressed within.”

Shweshwe is to South Africa as tartan is to Scotland. Though the prints above are not achieved with the same technique of using acid discharge on rollers, they borrow the intricate geometric patterns for which Shweshwe is so well known.

These mind-bending designs were created by Felice Varini, a Swiss artist who plays with perception and dimension. Looked at from a certain angle, shapes look like a translucent field floating in air. Step away and you see that the shapes are painted on walls rails, steps etc to create a stunning illusion.
