Behind the design: Avantgardening
The key theme in the Urban Luxury range, AVANTGARDENING and SO AVANTGARDENING! stand for a new, exotic, Bohemian city lifestyle. With its commanding, tropical motifs, AVANTGARDENING/SO AVANTGARDENING! represents the best of Christian Fischbacher design and manufacturing quality standards. The impressive floral print design forms a bridge between different artists from different eras. Drawings and paintings from the archives of the Rijksmuseum and the New York Public Library served as sources of creative inspiration. The Christian Fischbacher design studio captured the key integral elements of these artworks, composed them anew, and used a digital, photographic collage to narrate a fascinating story on fabric. The intense, colourful pattern repeat is displayed on a background of cream and dark blue. The graphically stylised peacock feather elements evoke the Art Deco era. There is an enchanted garden that draws you into a voyage of discovery. Flamingos, little monkeys, birds and butterflies transport us to a fantasy land. A creation by Christian Fischbacher that exudes a feeling of pure joie de vivre. The design is used for bed linen, decor, bath products and accessories.
