Designed as part of our NEW WAVE collective and printed on our paste the wall paper so the product is both easier than conventional wallpaper to hang and remove, this vibrant design was inspired by the natural beauty of honeycomb, its naturally repeating design made it perfect for a wallpaper design and the bright yellow colour adds a touch of spring to any room.
The only design duo in the New Wave Collective, KathKath Studio is a collaboration between textile artist and weaver, Kathy Schicker, and graphic designer, Kathryn Pledger. The pair pooled their respective industry experience and talents in 2013 to create a studio that specialises in surface pattern designs for digitally-printed products.
Their design, Honeycomb, is intended to draw attention to the rapid decline of the honey bee. ‘As bees play such a fundamental part in the function of the natural world, we aim to use design to raise awareness of their plight,’ they explain. Rendered in the perfect pollen yellow, the two say the design, derived from our close-up image of natural honeycomb with sunlight shining through.
