Dramatically elegant paper flower bouquet sculpture feels frozen in time and space
Inspired by the dramatic, botanical wallpaper “Artemis” by the British luxury interiors and lifestyle brand House of Hackney, Makerie decided to bring the beloved wallpaper alive in a paper sculpture form. Intended as a tribute to House of Hackney’s classic wallpaper pattern, the sculpture took weeks to create, with much attention put in each element and detail. Made of dark and gloomy, jewel-toned design papers, the paper bouquet feels dramatic and elegant, frozen in time and space, offering a masterful show of the two paper creatives’ talent and imagination.
Having always loved House of Hackney’s Artemis wallpaper, we decided to visualize it as a 3D object. The project took weeks of art working and building, with each unique flower designed in Illustrator and then built entirely by hand”, Wilkinson and Horscroft write.
