These delicate and beautiful Floating Leaves are the result of a collaboration between the 3 Copenhagen based design companies; Moebe x Paper Collective x Norm Architects. The frame itself is by Moebe, and the series of botanic photography was created especially for it.
I love the minimal and subtle designs, a great way to add more greenery to your home in a modern way as they give the illusion of real leaves. In fact, by using UV print it is possible to print a photograph onto transparent foil, thereby utilizing the unique transparent character of the iconic Moebe frame. Available in a range of sizes from A5 to A2.
“The Sabi Leaves photos are inspired by the gathering of botanic samples and classic botanic illustration. Playing with an element of decay, the Sabi Leaves also become iconic expressions of time frozen. They are visibly vulnerable to the effects of weathering and have recorded the sun, wind, rain, heat and cold in a language of discoloring, rust, tarnish, stain, warping, shrinking, shriveling and cracking. Their nicks, chips, bruises, scars, dents, peeling and other forms of attrition are a testament to their history. Through the transparency of print and frame the leaves get a unique sense of multi-dimensionality rarely achieved in printed products.” – Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen (Norm Architects)
