The _Story

Inspired by ripped posters and typography underneath the night lights

Graduate of Central St Martins and critically acclaimed, Mimi Forrest’s work is inspired by everyday environments and the remnants of ripped posters and typography. Building pattern through layering and the intriguing low-level relief naturally created by this disposable street-level art, Mimi captures the essence through new surfaces that are sometimes two-sided, pleated or folded. For Cut, Mimi created a collage from fragments of found typography translating this to a design full of irregular edges and unexpected lines, in a colourway inspired by the light of night.

The _Construction

Hand Woven

Often called flatweaves or kilims, hand-woven rugs are made using a loom-weaving process that creates a neat alignment of yarn. A great technique for reproducing geometric pattern and also makes a good choice if budget is tight.
