• A Few Highlights From London Design Festival 14

    Posted on 15/10/2014 by A Rum Fellow

    London Design Festival 2014 was once again crammed full of creative events across the capital. We didn't have the opportunity to see as much as we'd like as we were preparing for Decocrex.  However here are a few snippets of design talent that bowled us over.

    Artist, designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox explored the future of travel at the London Design Festival by designing a Stained Glass Driverless Sleeper Car, or Mini Cathedral for short.  Covering the outer shell of the vehicle in fantastic, colourful, geometric stained glass patterns. What a wonderful way to travel around – bring on the Future!Dominic Wilcox  Stained Glass Car

    “A Child’s Dream” charity project in Design Junction showed a magical room full of white balloons and colourful products. The space was created in partnership with two renowned British brands – Anglepoise and Ecrol, and involved 19 leading designers interpreting classic products. All the pieces were auctioned off for Teddy’s Wish, a charity supporting families and research into the causes behind SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). Walking into the space through the balloons and coloured chairs felt like walking in a dreamy cloud with magical, floating patterned furniture. Loved it!

    “A Place Called Home” took over Trafalgar Square, where 4 chosen artists and designers created an installation around the question “what makes a house a home?”. Jasper Morrison’s was a comical interpretation of a pigeon fancier’s house because, as he said, “who else would choose to live in Trafalgar Square?” Patternity, on the other hand, created a fun and striking installation that reflected the surroundings around through repeating pattern. Both the inside and the outside showed large kaleidoscopic prints whilst visitors could spin a wheel to reveal optical illusions created through refracted light. A beautiful and unique outlook on the surroundings of Trafalgar Square!

    David David’s eye-catching work could be seen at both Design Junction and in the Exhibition Road tunnel to the V&A Museum. More than 1,700 custom-made printed tiles were used to complete this installation! Islamic geometrics and traditional British Design inspired this collaboration between Johnson Tiles and David David. The London Design Festival is always one of the most important dates in the design calendar and we reckon that this colourful installation, known as ‘Carousel Wall', was one of this years most exciting and dazzling exhibits.

  • Runge's Colour Sphere featured in Elle Decoration

    Posted on 16/07/2014 by A Rum Fellow

    We are very pleased that Elle Decoration have given a full page feature on our 'Single Colour Sphere' print in their current issue. As colour addicts ourselves we love the scientific arrangement of colours in his of paintings, and the man behind them is fascinating too (more below).

    Click on the images to view the prints in store.



    Romantic German artist Phillipp Otto Runge accomplished a great deal in a short life. A well respected painter, a poet, and a writer whose stories featured in Grimm's Fairy Tales. Above all this he was the pioneer of his age in the field colour.

    At the beginning of the 1800's Runge began exploring the range of possibilities of mixing yellow, red, and blue along with white and black. His aim was to test the limits of colour combinations and to map out the findings. This work resulted in his 'Farben-krugel' (colour sphere) a series of paintings that scientifically, and very beautifully, present the colour spectrum.


    Runge was struck by an early death just as his paper was published, and sadly never received the full recognition for his work. However we have these two colour sphere prints reproduced from his original paintings, a real treat for any colour addict! In addition to the series we have the beautiful 'Colour Star' print.

  • Futurismo Ancestral Exhibition at Somerset House

    Posted on 25/05/2014 by A Rum Fellow

    We went down to Somerset House yesterday to catch the Futurismo Ancestral exhibition. The collection of works by Barcelona-born graffiti artist Sixe Parades’ are his ode to Peruvian and Andean aesthetics. The show is brilliant, especially for fans of Peruvian culture, weaving, textiles art and especially colour. But it ends tomorrow, so head on down if you get a chance.

    If you can't make it down there are some of our favourite bits...
