Christophe is one of our founders and creative director. His passions are interiors, cooking, and traveling the globe for new inspiration.

Tim Meakins is an up-and-coming artist that creates extremely unique sculptures that look like cartoon characters. His works look like clay cartoons that morph into other objects, similar to cartoons we have all seen as children. Meakins is a freelance illustrator, Perth artist, and designer. He uses pop art and social media to present his artistic representations and usually leaves the artwork open-ended, allowing viewers to think about the meaning ourselves. The meaning behind his life-size cartoons is to identify masculinity in a social construct. They are often lifting weights and have muscular bodies. Meakins allows his audience to reinterpret the societal roles set in social expectations. We’re recoloring a Tom Dixon carpet to match our Tim Meakins inspiration.

One of his sculptures called “Hotdog 2020” is of a life-size cartoon hot dog with muscular legs and arms. The hotdog is smiling mischievously and looks like he is working out. Another one of his artworks, “Protein 2020” is a similar artwork that looks like he is a muscle head with a body of a protein shake and weighted plates as his head.

We translate Tim Meakins’ cartoon exhibitions into our material board. Our Blur II carpet by Tom Dixon transforms into a colorful version to use as the backdrop of the palette. We incorporate mustard yellow, light red, and light blue colors, similar to the sculptures.

For the rest of the mood board, we use Vidar by Kvadrat which uses natural earth tones. The material is tightly woven and uses wonderful contrasts. The Bella Vista by Durasein complements the Zellige by Riad Tile, along with ReForm A New Wave Grass by ege.
