Out with grisaille! Summer 2011 “Stabilos” the world to make it resemble a sixties‟ musical comedy! To the sound of lively electro, the brain is out to lunch, irony acts up, objects take a holiday and silhouettes adopt tones that fizz and pop! Long-live naïve humor, plastic and cardboard cut-outs!
An urge to escape to a fantasy world of extravagance and eccentricity is expressed through an unapologetic return to decadence. An antique element is inspired by the 1920s; a time of frivolity and romanticism.
‘Retro’ defines the care free attitude of the neo-hippy on the classic American road trip. Nostalgic journeys take in kitsch beach scenes and compelling coastlines. Design is inspired by vintage postcards, poolside images, Hawaiian beaches and Californian motels.
A return to old world values and ethics, the conscientious traveller embraces relaxation with Riviera style cruising, fantastical airships and classic train journeys. Design realizes an essence of calm sophistication and elegance.
Design is inspired by ideals and alternatives; indigenous cultures of Oceania and Africa are all interpreted within a modern context. Coastal extremes, Aboriginal art and African aesthetics present a pleasing clash of values and blend of cultural unity.
