The winners – Part 2

19 February 2015

As we sifted through hundreds of pieces of work and thousands of votes over the last couple of weeks, one thing became abundantly clear.  Man cannot live on pizza and design alone.  You also need Diet Coke.

That sorted, we noticed something else.

The talent pool vying for the top spot was larger and more exceptional than we could ever have expected.  Eventually, we had to make the call on the winner.  But we thought only fair to reward five artists who’d come a close second.

The Five have been commissioned by us to develop a new and exclusive piece of work.  And here’s the skinny on their abundant talent:

 

Teija Vartianen 

Her work caught the eye of the community and us from the first day we saw it.  Her signature is in stunning craft, expressed in a style ranging from the whimsical to the impressionistic.  Check out her work here and here.

Anna Alanko

There is a freedom in Anna’s work that makes her wallpaper almost alive.   With rich bursts of colours, she creates fearless designs full of spirit and joy: a carnival mood balanced by Nordic subtlety.   Check out her work here and here.

Maria Lee

Rarely have we seen emotion captured so remarkably in wallpaper.  Maria’s hand-painted pieces moved us and touched us.  This is wallpaper that whispers a story that you desperately want to hear.  Check out her work here and here.

Florent Bodart

Florent is a man of ideas.   His approach is a pop-art one: to reimagine the everyday in a way that makes it remarkable.  Playful, funny, stylish – Florent brings the medium to life to the simplest of touches.  Check out his work here and here.

Claire de Quenetaine

Timeless and mesmerizing, Claire’s work displays craft, vision and a beauty that breaks out of any categorization.  Her talent has already attracted the attention of brands like Heals.  Check out her work here and here.

 

We’ll share the work from this remarkable talent pool as soon as it’s ready.  And, tomorrow, we announce the final winners’ list: the designers who are going into the shop.
