Abstract

The Pattern Research Project involves research and analysis of contemporary patterns found in the textiles and wallcoverings of the built interior environment. Patterns use motif, repetition, color, geometry, craft, technology, and space to communicate place, time, and concept. Through this research and analysis, built environments - their designers, occupants, construction, and context - can be better understood.

Chansong Kwak, VCU Interior Design BFA 2020, selected the Dot pattern by Paul Smith for Maraham for the 2017 Pattern Research Project. The text below is excerpted from the student’s work:

“The pattern ‘Dots’ was designed by Paul Smith [in collaboration with] Maraham. Paul Smith is a menswear designer known for his quirky twist to traditional suiting for gentlemen and confident use of color.”
