Materialising a cherished fascination for floral prints: Floral wallpapers . car curtains . lampshades . beer glasses . bedding . bathingsuits . and more
Thomas Voorn shows off his green fingers...
He develops contemporary floral prints of flowers and plants from his own city garden. Home grown, nurtured, handpicked and photographed by Voorn himself. In the past years he created 24 spring/summer prints and 19 autumn/winter prints, calling the collection of florals ‘Herbarium’.
Voorn brings the 'Herbarium – Spring’ florals into practice with his own limited edition floral print products. The familiar floral print is subtly twisted and translated into a contemporary variation. The designs are sharp and photographic, as well as subtly distorted in pattern to give them a handmade feel.
Voorn started to work from his fascination in the ‘Florals & Checks' series as research for a contemporary clash & match of floral prints in fashion. This time with his own floral wallpapers, bedding, clothing, curtains, plates, lampshades and more. In typical Voorn style, he is balancing between dose and overdose, object and surroundings. Thomas Voorn subtly twists reality and winks to daily life in this floral product series: a guy in bathingsuit with floral print from Voorn's garden, Peony Leaf silk clogs, a cigarette with Privet print, bedrooms with all-over floral prints. Providing the viewer a different perspective on the Peony, Conifer and Common Foxglove.
Now Available in the WebShop are a selection of Herbarium at Home wallpapers with the photographic floral prints
