Ring Pattern Curtains

Small patterns, particularly the same motif with a colour change, can make a fabric look very mid-century.

This pattern uses interlocking rings with a schematic stone and glow in four different colours and a small repeat to produce a very tidy and interesting fabric. From the outset I intended to use it as a curtain type of fabric and I have used the rather simple curtain set in Cinema 4D.  The observant will note that the format is now HD rather than 4:3.

The design is similar to the sort of designs that were produced mid-century and to aid the look the colors are taken from the British Standard colors in use at the time.

The actual pattern was coded in Processing using rather a lot of trial and error and the shape is used as a function which is repeated four times, one for each color. Yes, I know, there are more sophisticated ways to code it but I was interested in producing artistic results rather than coding. Because of this, the file is too long (and boring) to reproduce with this post but if anyone would like the file then I will be happy to send it to them.

You can also see larger versions of this and our other work on our Flickr page which is here.
