In celebration of The Maya Romanoff Corporation's 40th anniversary, Maya and Joyce Romanoff will be unveiling a collection of tie-dye wallcoverings to launch in Spring 2010.
Going back to their roots and drawing from experience with dying textiles and canvas floorcloths, the team, along with New York designer, Amy Lau, has reimagined three original limited editions on paper. Designs include Half Plaid, Snowflake and Crystal. The use of paper, rather than fabric, allow for greater depth and sheen, making the designs more powerful and elegant, boasting of pure sophistication.
“The immersion in making our products is what brings new ideas for us to create more products,” said Romanoff. “But the greatest creation I had anything to do with is the creation of our company. To make something beautiful once is easy. To be able to repeat it over and over consistently, that is always the challenge. I like to think we make things so many times, it becomes part of our nature.
Romanoff’s blend of ancient techniques and creative use of materials has resulted in inventive and opulent surfaces with inspiration drawn from archaeology, metallurgy, Woodstock-era psychedelia and pure passion and joy.
An anniversary event celebrating design icons of the last four decades will be hosted at the Museum of Arts and Design on March 10, 2010. Details to be announced.
