Science Museum together with PTF!

18 Sep

This year PTF have embarked on an exciting collaboration with The Science Museum, launching an array of vibrant products at 100% Design 2011!

Using imagery from the collections of the Science Museum, we have created a range of soft furnishings inspired by railway architecture and interiors, mathematical shapes, and micrographic photography. Science Museum Together PTF is the result.

The collection includes hand knotted rugs, funky lampshades and vibrantly coloured linen cushions in the signature styles of Print Tuft & Fold; sure to add a big splash of colour to any room!

We are all so excited about this collaboration… I remember when I (TUFT) first moved to London to study and totally falling in love with the Science Museum – where I bought my first toy kaleidoscope! …And the rest, they say, is history!

Its been such an inspirational project for all of us, and really hope you like the new products.

To preview the collection come visit us at stand x44, 100% Futures – 22nd – 25th September, Earls Court London.

Hope to see you there!

Love Zoe, Claire & Kim aka PTF x

Taking in some art in my PJ’s

26 Jan

Tonights wednesday club was cancelled, Tuft and Fold couldn’t make it and I decided it wouldn’t quite be the same on my own.  But I’ve become very attached to the culture and inspiring discussion every Wednesday evening seems to be bringing.  Especially as my evenings at home just recently seem to consist of the boyfriend watching every kind of sport he can possible find on TV.

Sitting in front of the computer I decided to have a search for art exhibitions and the Saatchi Gallery popped up, I’ve been meaning to go for so long, since it reopened actually and I hate to find out how long that is!! Well I kind of did go tonight, they have some great virtual tours on the website. So I sat on the sofa in my PJ’s while I was whisked around the exhibition. You don’t get any information on what your seeing but it gives you a real taste and this gallery is definitely top of my list now! Print xx

When Tuft is away, Print and Fold go out to play!

20 Jan

Tuft is out in Hong Kong for 2 weeks, leaving me and Fold to keep Wednesday club running.  So last night off we went to another University of the Arts London alumni event.  The preview of Sroop Sunar’s The Goldern Glassy exhibition, in The Arts Gallery new spanking space in High Holborn.  Sunar looks back hundreds of years to present a pictorial history of England, using the traditional British pub sign to redraw our cultural and visual heritage. Influenced by the aesthetic of everyday Asian consumer goods, Sroop playfully explores her dual Indian and English ancestry and skilfully retells the visual history of her two cultures with idiosyncratic visual wit. As the printer of the family I especially loved the texture of the prints on the rough woodern signs.  If you get the chance check it out do. Print x
20 January – 5 March 2011 Monday – Friday 11am – 6pm, Saturday 12 – 4pm.
