From tabby cats and wood grain to crosswalks and ladder rungs, stripes are all around you. Their simple structure makes them a classic pattern that’s been used for thousands of years – but it also means that they’re a vital part of modern design vocabulary. Lately, there’s been a resurgence of stripes with a bold, modern twist. Our Striking Linework pattern reflects that trend, and incorporates sharp angles that personalize the simple stripe and give it power. A fractured, abstract look also helps dimensionalize stripes to add depth and form to any surface.
3D geometric designs might seem relatively new, but you can find them in unexpected places – like woven baskets, latticework, and marble floors – that have existed for centuries. More recently, well-known artists like M.C. Escher have also drawn on these strong mathematical shapes and forms to define what’s known as “optical art.” Building on these traditions, bold geometric designs are now making their way back into the market with subtle twists in scale and color. Our Mod Optic pattern draws on these strong three-dimensional patterns for a clean, modern style that communicates sophistication and audacity.
