David Schmitt, also known as "Tuyo", is an artist and printmaker based in the south of Germany. In his work he tries to capture a timeless aspect, using organic shapes, archaic symbols, and an intuitive approach. Always fascinated by different cultures across the globe, their similarities, and differences in expression and art he tries to point toward the importance of community, compassion, and reflection of our modern values. "For me, art can be a way to reconnect with our human experience as we often stumble upon the archetypical forms and symbols which seem to be reproduced again and again throughout different times in human existence."

 

"The Elephant" symbolizes a loving approach to nature and our surroundings. Schmitt speaks a clear language of love: acting from the gentleness of the heart, representing true strength, and creating an empathetic environment -that leads us into a sustainable, healthy future.

ZEBU is a creative duo from Berlin composed of Lynn Lehmann and Dennis Gärtner founded in 2015. Being active in the fields of art and illustration, the studio's bold and dynamic visual language is applied in print products, murals, rugs, and exhibitions.

The design "Dandelion" is a reflection of our creative practice: through abstraction and reduction, we are trying to visualize the essence of an image. This vocabulary is characteristic of our work and creates a bold visual language with strong compositions and characters, which can't be assigned to a specific gender or nationality.

Yanyi Ha is an interior designer and artist based in London. She was among the winners of the Design Week Award in 2018. She loves to explore the relationship between architecture and nature through various design projects in her studio “Archidreamer”. She focuses on creating minimalist artworks and prints inspired by the cross-section between architecture and nature. She instills a sense of natural beauty in artificially made architecture, turning static pieces into something dynamic and lively.

This is the ‘Marine Series’ which I created having been inspired by light reflected off the waves while I was on the beach. I was excited by the marine architecture and how sunlight and water worked together to create beautiful shapes. I transformed this impression into my artworks using color and minimal shapes.

Jo Hummel's works are represented by galleries in London, Malmo, and New York. She has exhibited extensively, with artworks included in both public and private collections and she has a growing international collector base. Hummel's work is characterized by a painted and paper collaged surface on which she employs spontaneous variations of space, color, and form.

 

"Jets" was created from large painted sheets of paper that the artist cut into shapes, twisted, and rearranged until a visual balance was achieved. This design could not be more typical of this artist, an absolute Jo Hummel classic!

Liz Collins is an artist and designer living in Brooklyn. Employing a range of natural to synthetic materials, incorporating vivid colors, dynamic patterns, emphasizing textures and inventive structures, Collins enjoys pushing the limits and doing the unexpected across the spectrum of textile media. Her artworks surround the viewer in vibrating color fields to explore the boundaries between painting, fiber arts, and installation.

 

Inspired by a design she created for a long jacquard fabric where there was a dynamic jagged stripe pattern that expanded far beyond what a textile pattern usually does. The lines travel together as stripes across the surface extending to make a 20-meter long nonrepeating pattern. The imagery, common in her work, is influenced by the universal graphic language of bold contrasting stripes and chevrons used for signs for obstacles and dangerous locations.

A recurring classic in Rondelli's work: The stripe here in a colorful yet elegant combination. The perfect beach towel, also because it's so fashionable to dress in stripes at the moment.
