Spotted at Maison & Objet: Kristina Dam SS 2016

Sunday, 7 February 2016

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend interiors & lifestyle tradeshow Maison & Objet, on behalf of Trend Bible. With a first look at the latest collections for the home, we attend this show to spot emerging trends and to seek out the best from well established and rising designers. One stand I was keen to visit was that of Copenhagen based designer Kristina Dam, showcasing her newest collection for Spring Summer 2016. I've featured Dam's prints on Dursk once before (see link); her innovative botanical photography is uniquely potrayed, set through a milky translucent lens.

Her latest collection couldn't be more different, but is still equally as unique. With a play on perspective, her architectural style prints are bold and graphic with an illusionistic feel.

Even through to product design, perspective remains central to the theme, with bold candlestick frames, slotted together for a cubist and graphic statement. 

With lots of blocky shapes and linear overlays; I seem to get lost within these prints as my eye tries to follow the pathways to each line. Just as one might feel looking at an Escher drawing, these prints hypnotise you into finding the narrative and the solution behind the design. Maybe I'm reading too much into them - but either way, I'm hooked. 

I will be visiting Copenhagen next week and Dam's showroom is just one of many stop offs scheduled in for a pre-planned souvenir. Stay tuned to see what I get up to and what Danish delights I bring home ...
