Spiral Willow

French circa 1920

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution.

Description

Adelphi’s Early-Twentieth Century Collection draws on the work and influence of the Wiener Werkstätte in Vienna and the French Moderne movement–later known as Art Deco–two of the most influential design schools of the century. Designers in Vienna and in Paris inspired and influenced a generation of designers throughout Europe and the United States, who created a huge variety of patterns that combine fantastic organic and geometric forms with a vibrant color palette.

Spiral Willow’s bold, flowing design is a typically whimsical Art Deco take on natural forms, but with a striking color combination. It was designed by Rene Crevel and originally machine-printed, although the printing process used rollers fitted with felt strips, to which paint was applied, in an effort to approximate high-quality block printing.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 19¾ inches, width 18¾ inches, length 11 yards, straight match.

Metric Measurements: 50.2 cm, 47.6 cm, 10 m.
