rhythm of nature

The Armadillo x House of Grey _ A Shared Ethos

The philosophy behind this collection is one of designing spaces that nature a gentler pace of life. 

By removing visual distractions and replacing them with subtle sensory experiences, we balance the overwhelm of an overstimulated, urban world. 

Our quiet approach to design reclaims the home so it feels calmer and clears the mind. This in turn steadies the beat of the day-to-day life in tune with the rhythm of nature.

INTRODUCING _ Nikomachi Karakostanoglou

A Narrative on Nature is a collection of striking works in verdant greens and translucent aquamarines. A symbiotic liquidity and gentle effervescence permeates drawings which adopt a spiritualist beauty reminiscent of shards of sunlight penetrating a leafy canopy or deep pool. An ethereal ambience captures the sensorial impact of the elements while organic shapes resonate with the ancient cyclical rhythms of nature. 

Embedded in Nikomachi's drawings and sculptures is a quality that reaches to the human heart and restores hope in the unshakable continuum of the world to which we are all connected. '  Tiffany Jade
