The objective of this design was to dilute the plane of the surface with soft, organic forms. Akos was looking for a pattern suitable to create an intimate mood both for indoors and outdoors; he turned to nature for inspiration, and ended up applying the simplest of petal motifs. The rippling effect of the motif is enhanced by the addition of a soft bas-relief to the petals. The surface will appear to be moving when lit by a moving light source due to the ‘shell’ shape of the petals. Static light conditions will create a slow-paced, pleasant background. On smaller surfaces, a single colour selection may suffice.
