The Subtle Power Of Lines
- story by DecoLegno BV
Triangles, squares, hexagons, circles and other geometric shapes are a source of inspiration for designers in the graphic industry. In product design and interior architecture, lines are also played with to create effects of length, width, height or depth or alienating, three-dimensional perspectives.
The Italian brand Cleaf is known for its distinct décors and structures in decorative sheet material. But the collection has also made its mark in the more subtle genre. With refined linear structures, playful block patterns and wavy reliefs. The most recent innovation by Cleaf is the collection Jiometori. Jiometori is a texture with a geometrical composition inspired by Italian architect Carlo Scarpa’s Brion Tomb. Its versatility makes it interesting in combination with decorative papers with wood essences. Solid colours enhance the graphic aspect.
Cleaf’s Riga is a surface inspired by the parallel lines found in architecture and nature. The alternation of the negative and positive space expresses three-dimensionality. In combination with the walnut décor (UB40 Riga) it gives a classic look to walls and other interior design solutions.
By means of high-quality technologies and advanced printing techniques Cleaf also managed to translated the three-dimensional shape of pyramids into decorative sheet material in the collection Cheope. In hospitality, office, retail or private projects, these Claef textures help you in creating optical effects in custom made interiors or furniture.
