Adapted from a handpainted design by Gabriel Hendifar, co-founder of New York-based design studio APPARATUS, Strata Study explores strata, the organically occurring phenomenon of layering seen in nature. “The result is a texture that mysteriously lives between rock and wood,” says Hendifar.

With a vertical repeat of nine feet, it was designed with wall applications in mind, though the versatility of the pattern limits its applications only to the stretches of the user's imagination. The design is made-to-order and available as fabric and wallpaper.

Our own designs are deeply engrained in heritage and history, and Strata Study felt like something wondrous and ancient that collaboratively, we could present in a contemporary light. The pattern is printed using only a single color, which exemplifies a beautiful sense of nostalgia and references traditional screen printing, yet it feels wholly modern.

Created in collaboration with NY-based design duo, APPARATUS, Strata Study explores the organically occurring phenomenon of strata, layers of earth or vegetation created in nature. Composed of a texture that lives mysteriously between rock and wood, Strata Study feels both classically inspired and strikingly modern. With a vertical repeat of nine feet, it was designed with wall applications in mind, though the versatility of the pattern limits its applications only to the stretches of the user's imagination. This design is made-to-order and available as fabric and wallpaper.

Strata Study is exclusive to our studio and not available through any of our partners or showrooms.
