JUJU PAPERS INTRODUCES TRAPEZE PATTERN AT ICFF, Booth 122

Handmade Hexagonal Cement Tiles

Each Rotated to Create Unique Presentations

  
 
   

(Portland, OR, May 8, 2019 ) Avery Thatcher, founder/creative director of Portland, Oregon-based wallcoverings studio Juju Papers, adds a new pattern to her animated cement tile collection. Trapeze, followup to last year’s popular Fruit Salad handmade tiles, calls for rotating each tile to create a bespoke layout with every installation. Ideal for residential, hospitality, workplace and public spaces, Trapeze debuts mid-May at ICFF, booth 122.

Thatcher had experience installing tile prior to making her name as a wallpaper designer.  Wishing to create “daredevil acrobatic movement and graceful energy,” she conceived the idea of rotating each tile ⅙ of a turn as the installation proceeds.

  

  

 

DESCRIPTION

Made by hand one at a time in Mexico, the eight-inch diameter hexagonally-shaped cement tiles sport an organic undulating wave or petal motif. Three colorways, Black Blue, White Terra Cotta, and White Blanc, include such sumptuous hues as heather, terra cotta, military blue, and coral. Colors may be customized. A low energy, no-fire process creates a deliciously washy matte finish. Like the brightly colored acrobatic performers for which they are named, the Trapeze tiles interlock and swing apart, seemingly airborne in a prismatic scatter of color and movement. 

Cement tiles, manufactured using a centuries-old technique, are historically associated with symmetrical, traditional Spanish, Moroccan, or Mexican designs. However, the contemporary motifs and improvisational installation designed by Thatcher provide a thrilling shake-up to the category. Further, the variegated matte surface inherent to cement tile is a perfect enhancement to her vibrant palette.

DURABLE AND SAFE

Tile ingredients – marble dust, Portland cement, sand, mineral pigments, concrete – combined with the 1,700 PSI mechanical hydraulic press used in manufacturing, ensure these tiles are durable enough for residential and commercial applications, and both indoor and outdoor use. The tiles are a hefty 5/8” high, and weigh in at three pounds apiece.The wear (top) layer is a full 1/8” thick, making it appropriate for both floors and walls. The coefficient of friction is also well over the .42 standard - averaging in at .65 - making it safe for commercial traffic and wet applications.

  

  

  

ABOUT AVERY THATCHER

Primarily inspired by mark-making, folk art, and personal magic, Thatcher is artist of luxurious, idiosyncratic wallpaper and tile. She obtained a BS in Art in 1999, then moved to Portland in 2001 in order to pursue that city’s dream of cheap rent, thriving underground music scene, and the ability to travel: in Africa, Asia, and South America. She also worked in the art departments of such Portland creative outfits as Laika, Michael Curry Design, Bent Image Labs, and Murmur Creative during this time. Thatcher founded Juju Papers in 2010. Her signature style combines the informal look of outsider art with an elegant and approachable touch, all marked by sophisticated craftsmanship and unparalleled quality.

JUJU PREMIERES FLUX AT ICFF, BOOTH 122

 
Avery Thatcher, Portland, Oregon artist behind the outre chic wallcovering studio Juju Papers, will launch her latest collection at ICFF this May. The new group, called FLUX, is intended for both residential and commercial spaces, and takes its cue from women’s fluctuating and generative roles over personal lifetimes and throughout history. Four complementary patterns - some literal, others abstract - in a total of fourteen colorways, are rendered with arcs, curves and circles, to connote ebb and flow. Design professionals will have a first look during ICFF, booth 122. The collection will be available to consumers and the trade mid May.
  
Explains Thatcher, “The concept of womanhood has been an ongoing inspiration and study. Through the lens of mother, artist, and studio principal, and my experience vs. those of my mother and grandmothers, FLUX looks at the shifting experiences and expectations of feminism. All of the designs in FLUX have a current of flow and undulation, paired with a sturdy, structural balance.”
Thatcher’s idiosyncratic illustrative style is made glamorous through the use of opulent, shimmering metallic inks.
  
La Strada: A large-scale, textural collage of rounded and serpentine forms, made with sponge painting and screen-printing squeegees. Sponge paint, the kitschy ‘90s DIY treatment, is here flipped to become an ornate, polished finish. Four colorways: gold on cream, gold on charcoal, gunmetal on cream, diamonds and pearls on cream.
  
The artist notes that “the (living sea creature) sponge is constantly moving, flowing, while constantly growing. It's a textural gem.”
 
  
Women: Large-scale line drawings of female profiles, depicted with dignity and quiet determination. Four colorways: gold on cream, gold on charcoal, gunmetal on cream, gunmetal on blush.
 
  
Silhouettes: The large-scale collage of sponge paintings and marks made from gel is arranged in a loose scatter that can simultaneously read mid-century and punk. Three colorways: gold on charcoal, celeste [blue] on cream, champagne on cream.
 
  
Waving: A billowing stripe depicting rippling curtains or fabric; it also hints at the rising and falling surf. Three colorways: gold on cream, gold on charcoal, celeste [blue] on cream.

TO THE MAXI

Be bold and take your space to the MAXI. See how you can use one of our newest wallpapers to the Juju collection, Maxi, to create out of this world looks at home or at the office. 
  
  
There is nothing better than seeing our newest High Dive Collection installed out in the real world, especially when it happens to be one of our favorites patterns!
  
Here at Juju Papers, we've been blown away by our favorite designers using Maxi to create one-of-a-kind spaces that really have that 'wow' factor. 
  
Elsie Larson and Loretta Lou transformed the new Apple and Oak HQ using Maxi in gold on cream as a statement wall. The thick, painterly rings and lines have maximum visual impact while the negative space avoids overcrowding in a small room. 
  
    
One of our favorite things about Maxi is its ability to pair perfectly with other textures and patterns. The expressive gesture of the metallic gold compliments every detail, from the soft tassel chandelier to the geometry in the pink, patterned floor of the Apple and Oak office. Elsie said:
  
I have always wanted to use this wallpaper- it's one of my favorite designs and I envisioned in in a small space- which was perfect for Allison's office. I loved working with Allison because she wanted to mix patterns and use a lot of color. The wallpaper is so stunning and makes a bold statement when you walk through the door.
  
  
Maxi has also been getting some notices in the press. We were honored to be finalists in this years NYC X Design for our Maxi pattern and the rest of our High Dive Series. 
  
  
Did you know we offer custom colorways in all of our designs? This custom Maxi in gunmetal on blush is a daring but inviting welcome to the reception area at Jennifer Bett Communications, a New York PR firm. Their new NYC office, as recently highlighted by Lonny, was designed by our friends Xandro Aventajado and Rachel Kane at Current Interiors

Drawing the eye across the open space of this creative, stylish office, the dynamic shapes maximize the effect of a single accent wall. From Xandro:
  
We hung the Maxi in the reception area. We feel that with its bold pattern and welcoming colorway, it sets the tone for the entire project. Viewers are greeted with immediate intrigue and personality.
 
Over here at Juju Papers, we are all about mixing big, daring patterns! This showroom combined Maxi in champagne on cream and Le Freak in gunmetal on cream to create a match made in wallpaper heaven.

Available in three colorways; the classic gold on cream, the drama of gold on charcoal, or the light and effervescent champagne on cream. Is your space just calling for some Maxi? Would you like some help getting started with a custom colorway? Drop us a line at sales@jujupapers.com and we will walk you through every step of the way. You can also order samples of all our wallpapers here to give your project a jump start.
