Graham & Brown's New Shape & Form Collection
New Jersey, July 13 2010 - Shape & Form is the latest collection from Graham & Brown's design studio, a collection of geometric, architecturally inspired textured wallpaper. Featuring graphics embellished with glossy finishes, metallic sheens and fine tones, the designs explore the way in which light and shadow affect our perceptions. Similar to how a building can appear softer or more defined depending on the time of day, natural light, and shadows cast, Shape & Form adds depth and tone to walls which change with the lighting of a room.
Mark Radford, Director of Design & Marketing, Graham & Brown says, We wanted to push the boundaries and create a dramatic, masculine collection that plays with perceptions conjuring optical effects to offer homeowners a dimensional alternative for wall decoration.
Reflecting its architectural inspiration the collection's color palette includes seven block shades - crisp white, muted cream, sleek slate, stark black, midnight purple, and terracotta red. The range includes the following seven designs:
Checker - Taking its inspiration from modern architecture and a mix of contrasting textures and surfaces, Checker features multi-layering textures and shadow for an exaggerated 3D effect.
Cubix - The cubix design embraces a classic geometric box pattern, using fine texturized lines to accentuate and embellish the pattern for a multi-dimensional finish.
Concave - The elaborate Concave design is a contemporary take on a decorative double curve, featuring gloss and metallic effects for an illusional finish which dances across the wall.
Ephemeral - A flowing geometric design, Ephemeral combines texture, dots and shadow to create a fluid-brick effect
Mensa - Reminiscent of retro rounded television screens, Mensa's simple geometric layout is brought to life by two contrasting texture depths creating a spherical effect for walls.
Empire - Inspired by the ancient art of paper-folding and the growing interiors trend for origami-esque products in the home, the gently folding pattern repeat of Empire adds a dash of metallic and gloss to subtly enhance and lift the pattern off the wall.
Ethos - Evocative of the luxurious moir fabric finish in which a gentle waving pattern is balanced with a shiny finish, the Ethos design mixes matte and gloss with an intricate circle formation repeat to create a sinuous, meditative design.
