Skyline Gems (100% natural)

Nature’s paintings preserved in stone

Pietra paesina, also called ‘landscape stone’, ‘ruin stone’, ‘ruiniform marble’ and ‘Florentine marble’, is collected for centuries. It’s a kind of limestone of which the natural veins of the rock have arranged themselves in shapes of city skylines, landscapes and ruins. The limestone needs to be cut into slabs and polished before it will reveal it’s mysterious paintings.

Pinar&Viola x Print All Over Me NYC Exhibition

As part of New York textile Month, we made a collaboration with the super fun Print All Over Me from New York! We gave them our Healing Prints and they made items where you can spread healing in your everyday life. Sweatshirts, tablecloths, tote bags, clutches, with our prints varying from Mother Earth to Sexual Healing, Emancipation of Flowers to Silent Print. Last week, June 24th marked the celebration of our collaboration. The New Yorker boutique, Coming Soon in Lower East side hosted our opening, where we set up a healing oasis! Our Healing Prints that you can order on POAM’s website, were presented alongside with 2 teepees and peace flags, cushions and curtains which created an ambiance of zen and tranquility. An aestheticised oasis in the midst of our metropolic hectic lives. Thank you everyone who were there to celebrate it with us. The exhibition is open for a week more.

The scenography of our exhibition was designed by Haddock Studio, and the VR Oasis in the installation is made  by James Orlando.

Fish’s #1 art collective

Tokyo Aquascape Union

Let us introduce you to Tokyo Aquascape Union, a group of Japanese artists with a big passion for aquariums.  They are skilled aquarium lovers who use their talent, patience and skills to create mesmerizing compositions, planting balance and healthy habitats for fish.

When you look at their aquascaping creations, you may be transported in a surreal world where the underwater mountains and forests became breathing paintings.
The only way to tell it’s an aquarium are thanks to the fish flying through the air.

“Veganism isn’t a goal to attain. It’s the means by which we can attain our goals. Compassion is the goal. Veganism is a way to get there.” Colleen Patrick Goudreau

We designed a holographic catwalk

Our studio designed the world’s first holographic catwalk for a virtual fashion line, all showcased on a real model, during Amsterdam Fashion week in July 2016. With this technology, we mimicked what Google’s Magic Leap will make us experience in the upcoming years. As for the future of fashion, we believe that people buy, throw, and mistreat their clothing because we do not feel connected with the inanimate objects around us. That is the reason why, with this catwalk experience, we made people emphasise with their clothing the way they do with their friends, where we visualised the spirit of the clothing.

Through animism, we gave life to the fashion line of Amber Slooten by adding facial characteristics like mouths and eyes and interactions between the dress and the model. You can find more information about this project on our interview in The Creators Project, and watch the making off of the hologram here.

Launch Healing Prints: P&V Image Collection 2017

Auction Healing Prints — Paris, 29th of June 2016

The way fashion designers launch collections where they showcase the near-future of clothing, our studio yearly launches collection where we showcase the near-future of images. The concept decides for the medium where these images will be shown.
Followed by our artist statement about our devotion to social and planetary justice, we digitally crafted a collection where we made prints and garments that revitalize and celebrate the sacredness of nature. Healing Prints is a collection of rebellious visuals fabricated into unique fashion statements.
Each garment is a chance to spread the contemporary altruistic message of the healing prints, by mixing the aesthetics of high fashion and digital couture.
The collection manifests in different sub-topics, such as Mother Earth, Sexual Healing, Healing from Capitalism, Power To The Earth, Silence and The Emancipation Of Flowers. We made five one off couture pieces, 3 dresses and 2 t-shirts of edition one, which we sold during a special auction performance with Luc Saucier on the evening of June 29 in our studio in Paris. It was a festive event with an enchanting Healing Print relaxation room, a music performance of David Millhouse and abundant raw cacao sniffing.

Silencio Pool Party

Last summer, around this time, Silencio, the renown Parisian night club, designed by David Lynch, opened their doors to a temporary summer house in the south of France. We have been asked to organise a pool party with our Scandal Aqua Collection towels, which were a highly aestheticised, open minded yet critical scenario for the future of political sex scandals. The party started with a champagne breakfast and lasted till very late at night with all the guests in the pool.

Pinar&Viola for IKEA

IKEA commissioned Pınar&Viola to create a collection of prints under their name, to go on a wide variety of IKEA products, as a part of their Limited Print Collection. On 8th of June, during Democratic Design Days in IKEA Headquarters in Almhult, Sweden, the prototypes of the collection were presented to a group of 250 journalists.

IKEA asked Pınar&Viola to create prints that would attract, inspire, and surprise people all over the world. They wanted prints which would make them dream. To respond to IKEA’s wish, P&V created a collection which is an invitation to embrace the stranger, the unknown, the alien. A collection to celebrate similarities and differences. A collection to make people fantasise about social and planetary justice, through mythical animals and creatures. A collection to embrace the other. These themes are embodied in the four worlds: forest creatures, sweet alien, birds and the bees, and Gaudi giraffe.

The collection will be launched worldwide on June 2017. If you wish to know more about this collection don’t hesitate getting in touch with us: amandine@pinar-viola.com
