Atomic Design In Light Stone

The 1950s saw a host of spectacular scientific discoveries and investigations taking shape which were laying bare the secrets of nature.

Nowhere was this more compelling than in atom research. Every day it seemed, new, startling and sometimes frightening facts began to emerge, accompanied by illustrations, of the structure of the subatomic world.

Designers were quick to see this as a rich subject for use in surface patterns and the designs began to appear as wallcoverings and fabric. This pattern is a perhaps fanciful representation of those ideas and is here used as a fabric for cushion covers in two contemporary colours, light stone and beautiful eau de nil.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and my other work on my Flickr page which is here.
