JOIN MINI MODERNS FOR A CANDLELIT EVENING PLAYING ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC GAMES OF THE SEVENTIES.
What did people do on those long 1970s power cut evenings with only a battery operated tape cassette player for company? Well, they played games of course. And what could be more sophisticated than a game of Backgammon? The pastime was elevated to craze status during the seventies – the decade that acts as a backdrop for the Buddha of Suburbia collection. Mini Moderns founders Keith and Mark say that from an early age they were both obsessed with the glamorous connotations of Backgammon, as well as its graphic geometry. The design duo explain: “We thought the interplay between chevrons and discs made for a dynamic pattern – the ideal combination for one of our few purely abstract patterns.”
Backgammon is available as a wallpaper in 4 colourways: Harvest Orange, Mustard, Chalkhill Blue and Concrete.
£50 per 10m roll – produced in the UK using water based inks on paper from sustained forests.
