In 2014, the renovated Members’ Rooms in Amsterdam’s iconic Royal Artis Zoo reopened their doors. I updated and redesigned the building’s 19th-century wallpaper. This projected contributed to the Royal Artis Zoo winning the Dutch Design Client Award.
The wallpaper consisted of 4 patterns which were designed with data from my Treeful project. The designs aim to map and visualize nature’s complex patterns and fractals in a striking modern design.
In total, the wallpaper covered four rooms. The designs were based on the average values of 248 bamboo stems, fractals based on 31,000 leaves from a honey tree and a landscape of 1,300 spots of the plane.
The designs were made in collaboration with Circus Engelbregt, Maartje de Goede and Allard Medema.
