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

So we’re almost there! Just a few days to go.  What a huge preperation its been this year, we’ve been working on the feature for this year’s show since February!!  I’m so excited about seeing it all in place first thing Thursday morning as the first visitors enter the hall and are slapped in the face with Print, Tuft and Fold’s colour, pattern and texture. 

Here’s a couple photo’s of work in progress before it all went off to be cubed!

You may have heard us say a few times over the last couple of months how hard we’re working at the moment and wondered “on what?” Its also been the reason why the blog has been a little quiet for a while…sorry. It’s not that its been top secret its just that we wanted to get everything right before we let you all know about it.  We are seriously excited though!!

As well as having a stand at this years 100% Design we’ve also been asked by the creative directors Jam Design to put the PTF stamp on the 100% Features Boulevard, a real compliment for us as we’re only exhibiting in 100% Futures for the 2nd year.

So, what to expect? Well…high impact colour and pattern of course, with a collection of 18 seating cubes in various sizes, from the cute and tiny to the bold and jumbo.

We’ll be producing a collection of seating cubes made up of 3 clusters, each containing 6 cubes, a cluster for each member of PTF. This will include an array of kaleidoscopic-inspired carpet cubes from our carpet master of the group, Claire Alderdice; Print, Tuft and Folds resident printer Zoe Beck will be creating graphic city-inspired digitally printed cubes and Fold (aka Kim Bassett) will delight us all with her delicately pleated fabric cubes.

Positioned at the front entrance of Earl’s Court, Print Tuft & Fold aim to seize visitors’ attention with some seriously exuberant textiles as they enter the show.  Creating a colourful and comfy place to meet, relax, tweet and take in the great contemporary design.  So come and visit us and see what we’ve done to the place! http://www.100percentdesign.co.uk/

We also need to say a big thank you to all our sponsors, Hill & Co Rugs, D&G Upholstery, Fabpad (digital textile printers) and Reed Exhibitions.
