Textiles & More introduces a collection of fabrics inspired on sources of influence that can be found throughout Edward van Vliet’s world of design; nature and geometrics. All designs are presented at Masterly, Milan 4 – 7 April 2017.
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Building on the classic tradition of floral patterns in rugs and fabrics, the Nature collection celebrates, rich, natural themes. Brimming with detail and colour but carefully arranged, these fabrics speak of rainforests, English country halls and the age of natural exploration. A sparse, minimalistic context, capturing and exhibiting the wonders of nature.
Geometrical themes and their natural origins have always been a inspiration in Edward van Vliet’s work and a pillar of his design philosophy. Powerful shapes and lines reminiscing early Arabic mathematical exploits, the age of navigation by celestial objects, the zodiac and triangulation. This series offers a variety of patterns and designs that add a contemporary, yet sophisticated foundation to a space.
