Mark and Keith look to the skies and find inspiration in magical murmurations of starlings with the launch of their new wallpaper Star-ling.
When Mini Moderns spend the weekends at their Dungeness retreat, they look forward to the open night skies, when they marvel at the clarity of the vivid star constellations. Some of their beach house Saturday nights have lasted till dawn, when stars turn into Sunday morning murmurations of starlings.
The new design, Star-ling, is their interpretation of this magical transition. The pattern is also a nod to Mark and Keith’s first foray into wallpaper design, with their influential Swallows print from 2004. The birds form some familiar star constellations including Mark and Keith’s star signs.
Star-ling wallpaperStar-ling is the second wallpaper design to launch from the forthcoming Mini Moderns collection, Saturday Night/Sunday morning, in which the design duo revisit the cultural influences that shaped their design aesthetic during their teenage years, growing up in the north during the 1980s.
Star-ling is available in 5 colourways: Midnight & Silver, Snow & Gold, Rose Marais* & Gold, Pale Verdigris & Copper and Powder Blue.
* New for 2017, Rose Marais is a delicate plaster pink, inspired by a 1960s French schoolroom poster, picked up in Mark and Keith’s favourite vintage shop in the Marais district of Paris.
