Seaweed Florals

Inspired by the organic and natural forms of seaweed, Madeleine has created a collection of designs of which encapsulate organic flowing floral elements, whilst also demonstrating sensory-stimulating surfaces.

Intricate laser cut components produce a flamboyant floral seaweed inspired lighting design. Natural forms lead to a key inspirational source for Madeleine's designs, this is reflected in the materials used within this design, a defining use of leather and cork.

Madeleine displays a prominent style throughout her collections, working endlessly in laser-cut workshops to create beautiful bespoke laser designs.

Incorporating dark distinguished elements into the collection creates dimension and versatility. Experimentation captures the fluid textual qualities found within various seaweed forms. Manipulated dried PVA, ink and bleach samples create sensory-stimulating surfaces, reflecting the textural qualities of seaweed.

A diverse range of final outcomes intended for an interiors space is contextualised using visualisations to support the context of the designs.

The visualisations present a scaled perspective of Madeleine's designs within a contemporary home space environment. This visualisation demonstrates an extravagant lighting design consuming an interior space. Furthermore, Madeleine's printed designs can be seen to be contextualised within the soft furnishings of the room, the cushions and the rug.

Using a series of natural materials such as leather, linen, cotton and silk, of which are coherent with the intended neutral colour palette of the Seaweed Florals Collection. An injection of vibrant colour creates prominence within the collection.

Through the exploration of boiled onion skins, the surface qualities of those found in seaweed are reflected. The exuberant colours found within the onion skins introduce an element of excitement into the collection.
