Shape and Form collections | Graham & Brown

• July 31, 2010

We are pleased to present Graham & Brown’s latest design collection, Shape & Form. Shape and Form is the latest collection by Graham & Brown and is inspired by geometric shapes and the use of shadows to create depth and texture.

We wanted to push the boundaries and create a dramatic, masculine collection that plays with perceptions conjuring optical effects to offer homeowners a dimensional alternative for decorating walls.

Graham & Brown

The wallpapers feature geometric shapes, optical illusions, and natural forms which explore the ways light and shadow affect perceptions. Graham & Brown has created a unique collection that fuses simple designs with complex techniques; including high gloss, metallic sheens and fine tones that embellish and conjure optical effects.

Reflecting its architectural inspiration Shape & Form’s color palette includes seven block shades – crisp white, muted cream, sleek slate, stark black, midnight purple and terracotta red.

The designs within the collection include:

  • Checker
  • Concave
  • Cubix
  • Empire
  • Ephemeral
  • Ethos
  • Mensa

Ethos:
Evocative of the luxurious moiré fabric finish in which gentle waving pattern is balanced with a shiny finish, the Ethos design mixes matt and gloss with an intricate circle formation repeat to create a sinuous, meditative design.

Mensa:
Reminiscent of retro rounded television screens, Mensa’s simple graphic layout is brought to life by two contrasting texture depths creating a spherical effect for walls.

The wallpaper rolls are 20.5 inches wide by 32.8ft long and use paste on the wall for application. The papers may be purchased online for USD$70 at www.grahambrown.com
