Designers are looking to the virtual world for inspiration resulting in an array of pattern designs that layer traditional and digital elements. Brooklyn, NY-based artist, Phillip Stearns has translated images captured on intentionally short-circuited digital cameras into a line of contemporary woven blankets. From Italian tile brand Bisazza’s 2014 collection, Affresco is a colorful mosaic by Paola Navone that features a pixelated interpretation of a traditional floral motif. Similarly, London design studio Zuzunaga’s new Deep Grid and Harlequin carpets for British carpet manufacturer Brintons feature pixelated versions of antique carpet designs taken from the company’s extensive archive.
