The Book of Patterns

The Book of Patterns is a series of collaborations between Elementa and invited artists, designers and scientists. The aim is to explore the world of patterns to produce an evolving toolkit of contemporary decorative designs for interior architecture.

New scientific and technological breakthroughs have made it possible to see previously invisible patterns, both in nature and in culture. Todays software, access to data and processing power makes it possible to produce patterns that the course of evolution may have yet to explore.

Gaining an intuitive and spatial understanding of the language of patterns and algorithms is essential in our efforts to update our relationship both to nature and to technology.

With the Book of Patterns we wish to translate some of that into esthetic, tactile elements to be used in our everyday interior environments.

”A pattern has an integrity independent of the medium by virtue of which you have received the information that it exists. Each of the chemical elements is a pattern integrity. Each individual is a pattern integrity. The pattern integrity of the human individual is evolutionary and not static”.
