Summer Trend: Seeing Stripes
Trends & Events
“Stripes this summer should be big, bold and bright” Phoebe Roberts, Vogue.com. It seems that Studio Lawrence designers Bart Eijking and Patrick de Louwere couldn’t agree more!
The design duo’s award-winning pair, the Last Supper Table and wall hanging Along These Lines, chime in perfectly with this summer’s top fashion trend. Stripes hit the SS11 catwalks in vibrant style with the likes of Prada, Marc Jacobs and Jil Sander’s collections setting the look spinning.
Both Studio Lawrence’s pieces are big, bold and modular being comprised of colourful lined sequences based on the Fibonacci sequence. The intelligence and deeper story behind the design is unlocked through the modular compositions of the pieces. The vertical felt lanes of Along The Lines are hung form a steel rail in a modular system and can fill any size wall space, while The Last Supper Table can grow to any length from its standard 2.10m x 0.96m size, able to transform from a statement dining table to a colourful conference room table to a dramatic banquet table. The design then takes the modular composition of the pieces a step further. The positions of individual elements forming the lined sequences in both pieces can be changed, producing ever-shifting compositions; dynamic pieces that invite active and creative engagement.
Colourful and playful these pieces scream for the attention they deserve this summer! www.studiolawrence.com
