ABOUT ATELIER CPH
Atelier Cph is a multidisciplinary creative studio based in Copenhagen, Denmark. The studio is founded by Dutch art director Mandy Rep and Danish trend forecaster Sara Ingemann.
The new Atelier Cph poster collection is inspired by our research trips to France and Finland. In this collection we work with the idea of Gesamtkunstwerk, meaning a work of art that is getting inspired by multiple disciplines. We discovered that there was an interaction between some of France’s great modernist painters and sculptors, Fernand Léger, Jean Arp and the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. We got inspired by the use of abstraction that these artist experimented with and the connection between the South and the North. In this collection we experiment with a more organic abstraction and explore the layering of the colour white, by creating a collage of the materials paper and hand painted canvas. Graphic and organic shapes are created by contrasting colours and our newest experiment the tone on tone whites.
The Circle print collection is inspired by circles in various dimensions. For this series we have worked with hand painted textile and combined the round shapes with cut out lines to create a minimalistic composition. The art work is shot with a Hasselblad camera by the Danish photographer Jonas Danholt.
For the special edition Outlined we translated the circle universe into a more graphic approach. We combined hand painted fabric cut outs with digital grained shapes and connected them with thin white lines. The art work comes in a new colour palette where calm neutrals give contrast to the soft white and dark black.
THE ART OF FABRIC
The art work collection The Art of Fabric is based on translating fabric textures into a simple and minimalistic composition. The hand painted textile is cut in different abstract shapes and geometric forms. The art work is shot with a Hasselblad camera by the Danish photographer Jonas Danholt.
