Comprised of four unique designs, the Continum wallpaper collection by Trove derives inspiration from both the natural world and classical manmade motifs in equal measure – two reference ancient Greek mythology and two recontextualize nature in majestic ways.
Paying homage to the Three Graces in Greek mythology – charm, beauty and creativity – Charis is a modern interpretation of an early 1800s pattern by French wallpaper design house Zuber that Trove founders and designers Jee Levin and Randall Buck spotted at the Cooper Hewitt Museum. The grid-like formation of goddesses under arches has a compelling sense of orderly rhythm and is offered in four colourways.
A compilation of framed vignettes of the human body as depicted in Greek sculptures, Anthropos revisits classical stonework through a photographic lens. Arranged in horizontal and vertical planes, the glimpses of body parts are rendered in vivid colour blocking that juxtaposes the ancient with the modern. Available in four colourways.
On the natural side, Yishan depicts the majestic Huang Shan mountain range in eastern China, known for a one-of-a-kind ecosystem and oddly shaped peaks. The covering is printed on rice paper with a metallic finish in four colourways.
Rounding out the collection, Taku, named after a glacier in Alaska’s Tongass National Forest, features layers of irregular vertical lines reminiscent of ice shards and a tonal gradation. Offered in four colourways.
