Quince – Landscape of Inspiration

28 Jan


Loving the simplicity of Michelle Koop’s new range from her hand-printed textile and homewares label Quince.


The textile designer, who also trained as a chef, pulls in all of her experiences to create her ranges, Michelle is quoted as saying:

” A good chef knows what ingredients to put into  each dish to get the most of it – and when to stop.  It’s the same with design.”

With this philosophy in mind Michelle has taken inspiration of the colours from the rich soils of the Darwin landscape, and yellow ochres from indigenous art. She has combined this with the “urban” and “graphic” edge that is exhibited in the contrasting city of Melbourne that she lives in and her studio is based, to produce a subtle range that will not look out of place anywhere.
