a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Mini moderns collaborate with Rob Ryan on his first wallpaper design.
Our adventure is about to begin is the reather apt title for the first wallpaper collaboration between artist Rob Ryan and interiors brand mini moderns. Featuring Rob Ryan’s unmistakable paper cut imagery, the wallpaper depicts decorative bird cages, doors thrown open, vacated by a flock of free birds.
The design is based on the end papers of Rob’s forthcoming book, “A Sky Full of Kindness.” A distinctively Rob Ryan twist comes in the form of a secret message – the design’s title – which can be read only at close quarters in the form of individual words carried in the birds’ beaks.
Mini Moderns Creative Directors, Keith Stephenson and Mark Hampshire explain: “For us, working with Rob Ryan was a very enjoyable and creative experience. Having admired his work for such a long time it was an honour to work with such a recognised artist on this project.”
The wallpaper comes in 10m x 52cm rolls printed with waterbased inks on paper from sustained forests. OUR ADVENTURE IS ABOUT TO BEGIN will be available in three colourways, Sky Blue, Chalky Violet and Afternoon Green.
Launching in September 2011 – the paper will be available from minimoderns.com/shoppe
