Collectors Collection

Collectors Collection

Blackpop has undoubtedly created its most opulent & dramatic work to date working in collaboration with the Sir John Soane's Museum. Directly reworking architects’ drawings, paintings and objects d'art, the 'Collectors' Collection consists of 5 wallpaper designs, 4 fabric designs and 2 hand woven rugs, each with its own story to tell. 

These two designs, Hampton Hex and Hampton Gold  were created from Sir John Soane's and Richard Adam's architectural drawings and a sketch design
for the ceiling of the Queen's State Bedchamber
at Hampton Court Palace, 1715, by Sir James Thornhill.

Designer/Director Maxine Hall says

'A couple of my highlights were reworking two of Adam’s illustrations that
never came to realisation until now, embedded in ‘Fresco’.
'The other was working with and taking out segments
from Canaletto’s paintings of Venice and reassembling them for
the background of ‘Capriccio’.
Our design approach isn’t to copy existing motifs it’s a
creative process of dismantling and rejigging.'
