Inspiration

WhatWeDo Prints + Faunascapes

September 26, 2014

Plywood is trending at the moment in home interiors, have you noticed? That’s why I have to show you something very cool that I came across called WhatWeDo in the online shop of Lys Vintage, which I frequent on a regular basis since first meeting Simone (the owner) many years ago. I love the style of her shop because her interiors taste is really great and current — I get excited to see what she’s stocking next.

WhatWeDo Prints + Faunascapes

That’s why when I came across Copenhagen-based multidisciplinary design studio and product agency, WhatWeDo, in her shop before I had Aidan well I had to learn more. So I wrote to WhatWeDo and placed an order so that I could experience their products for myself.

This design duo is Hanne & Tobias Scheel Mikkelsen, with backgrounds in both architecture and graphic design, which is super apparent the moment you see their work. I love their posters – I have “Now” shown a few images above — and they also do these great designs printed on plywood called Faunascapes, and I have the fox on the hexagon because my little son’s “animal” has always been a little fox since he was born. When I get them up in my new work studio, I’ll show you how they look. I think the fox will end up in his room eventually though…

I love interesting art and when I find something that feels fresh and unique I get goose bump-y even still after all of these years of writing about interiors and products for the home. I come across so many thousands of things that often the sameness gets on my nerves but WhatWeDo is an inspiration because prints like these aren’t being done on plywood by a million companies already. It’s nice to still be able to find products that feel different and stand out from the pack.

Are you loving these too?

    Yay for getting goose bumpy for art! I get tingles myself and a deep satisfaction… like I just ate a really really nice meal. These are very fun. :)

    These look great. By the way, do you know where I can find the minimalist clock next to the ‘YES’ print?

    I am in love with that bunny! I agree, there is a lot of ‘sameness’ happening at the moment and it is so refreshing to see something different.

    A stupid question: What does this mean: “Products in this post are decor8 tested and approved.”?
    Thank you.

      @Kristiane – It means that products in the post were tested by me and I approve them. I stand behind them as being good products.

    These prints are very nice! Prints are nice for decors, but nothing beats the originals. I’m starting to collect original paintings.
