FARROW & BALL | New Colour by Nature Collection in collaboration with the Natural History Museum 2019
We were delighted to work alongside Farrow & Ball for a second year running on their new 'Colour by Nature' collection in collaboration with The Natural History Museum.
The brief was to initially design and produce 5,500 paper marigolds in Dutch Orange, one of the stunning new collection colours. Over 1200 sheets of A1 paper were hand painted before cutting into petals on our industrial machines and then each constructed by hand to make the beautiful marigolds.
We then went on to design further elements for a number of the store displays as well as a rather special display within the Cranbourne Boutique in the Natural History Museum in London. These included snow drops, bindweed, borrage, yew leaves, emerald rocks and spindle seed pods.
We absolutely loved working on this project and look forward to working with the team at F&B again!
FARROW & BALL | New Colour Launch 2018
We were approached by Farrow & Ball and asked to design and produce butterfly chrysalises as part of their window design concept for the launch of nine new colours.
Working with a foam base that had been sculptured to our specs we had the task of covering all 549 cocoons with papier mache in brown kraft paper to give them a natural organic look.
The cocoons were used in showrooms across the UK, Europe and US and were initially a 'teaser' which eventually revealed butterflies and moths in their new colours - the end result was simply beautiful.
