A celebration of beauty in impermanence

Wabi’s fluid design is influenced by the Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi, embracing the beauty of impermanence and imperfection.

Wabi features Calico Wallpaper’s inaugural pattern which melds traditional marbling techniques with modern design. By suspending various inks in pools of water we created intricate and evolving microcosmic shapes. We then preserved these transient designs by submerging large sheets of paper in the water, transferring the inks onto the absorbent surface. The resulting pattern combines minimal hues with opulent metallics, capturing a moment in time.

Inspired by the process of working in harmony with water’s state of continual transition and flow, Wabi finds beauty in fleeting forms, celebrating the natural processes that give character to our objects and environments as they are enriched over time.
