Urban shapes, bright colors, impressive textiles

Urban shapes, bright colors, impressive textiles

Camille Walala and studio ambar’s collaborative project transforms stark urban structures and buildings into cheerful, soft textiles.

How can you bring the essential forms of urban life into homes in an inviting and warm way?  That’s what French-born multidisciplinary artist Camille Walala and London-based textile development studio ambar have been working on in their latest collaboration. Walala’s building silhouettes, simplified into geometric shapes, were the inspiration for ambar founder Natalia Nicolau to turn these architecturally inspired works into home textiles.

Another similarity between the two artists is that Nicolau comes from Brazil, while Walala regularly draws inspiration from the work of Latin American architectural legends such as Luis Barragán and Ricardo Legorreta. The collection combines 3D illusion shapes with vibrant colors, resulting in pillows, floor cushions, placemats, table runners, and merino blankets.

The collection can be purchased here.
