We are very excited to announce the aviary...
We've taken Australian native and tropical birds, first depicted on paper nearly two hundred years ago, and reinterpreted them as quintessentially modern, perspex artworks.
A cacophony of cockatoos, a pandemonium of parrots, and a durante of toucans are brought to life in all their fine detail, the transparent medium giving them superior depth of colour and enabling their natural shadow casting.
‘Aviary’ complements the trend for vintage, scientific-style illustrations in contemporary interior design, accompanied by a revival in faux specimen display and the popular use of glass cloches as decorative accents.
“In mid-nineteenth century Victorian society, a private aviary filled with exotic birds was the height of fashion, a luxury afforded by the aristocracy” says Signarture creative director, Sarah Leslie. “For those of more modest means, taxidermy and lithographic prints became the vogue”.
These stunning perspex artworks can be installed in both indoor and outdoor spaces and like previous Signarture collections such as ‘treescape’ have focused on bringing the outside in and connecting us to the natural environment.
“Aviary takes this another step further, bringing the birds out of the trees and placing them in the spotlight” says Sarah.
Everyone loves Spring! It's the annual catalyst not just for some spring cleaning but for giving our homes a makeover or even a full renovation. An injection of new season colour in easy to add pieces such as artworks and accessories is all you need to transform your space, and our new Aura collection provides just the inspiration you need...
The aura collection designed to complement the trend for lightness, soft curves and interiors of luxurious simplicity. Organic forms in meditative arrangement are rendered in soft focus and utilize the transparency of the medium creating artworks with an aura of luminosity. An enigmatic palette contrasts light and dark: white and shades of grey with accents of lime, turquoise, mint, pink and coral.
