Biophillia exults in the surreal qualities of the natural world. Drawing on the tradition of botanical illustration, highly rendered flora and fauna celebrate the complexity and curiousness of nature. The striking use of colour gives this design a distinct and modern visual identity, and is an expression of the studio’s passion for evoking the strangeness that is ever-present in the world around us. Printed in Preston, England, onto a coated non-woven base, the fine detailing of Biophillia combines the sumptuousness and tradition of the Baroque with modern design. This design, as one journalist put it, is “baroque for the 21st century”.
