With the use of clean edges, clever repeats and trompe l’oeil effects,
Geometric revives the mood of the 60’s with its ‘Op Art’ geometry and
explorations of colour, line, movement and illusion.’
-Cole & Son CEO, Simon Glendenning
"Cole & Son has launched the autumn 2011 Collection, Geometric, at London Design Festival. Consisting of fifteen designs, the leading wallpaper manufacturer’s latest offering is a selection of contemporary designs influenced by intricate patterns and vivid graphics. The modern collection is a unique juxtaposition coming from a factory that still uses traditional methods.
Following the success of last year’s installation, Cole & Son has returned to Andaz Liverpool Street to showcase the eclectic range of smart and contemporary Geometric wallpapers in an installation for LDF. The back wall of the Andaz Lounge (lobby) displays the dramatic new large repeat digital panel design – Circus. As a humorous twist, the angular nature of the wallpapers is offset by three life-size animal sculptures, each dressed in their own patchwork of Geometric patterns to showcase the collection."
"Founded in 1875, Cole & son retains the original spirit of the company, combining skilled craftsmen with traditional processes and the latest modern technology. Today, the Cole & Son archive consists of approximately 1,800 block print designs, 350 screen-print designs and a huge quantity of original drawings and wallpapers, representing all the styles from the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries."
