The collection Asian deco gets its inspiration from Asian craftsmanship and ornaments like ink wash painting together with motifs found in historic Japanese and Asian art. In combination with the contrast and geometrical playfulness found in art deco we believe that this collection celebrates both eras but also showcases them in a new light.
The asian heritage that dates back as long as from the 17th century, if not even more, to the art deco in the 1920s. Even though these sources of inspiration come from two different periods of time they do have some things in common. The celebration of craftsmanship and the things made by hand, luxurious golden ornaments and the sharp contrast between black on a light colored paper. Obviously they have their own reasons and interpretations of why these common themes existed. There are nevertheless similarities that make these styles enhance each other. For us this combination in history became the starting point for our own interpretation and ended up in the collection we call, Asian deco.
