Julius Arthur is a textiles designer specialising in quilts and unique objects for the home. His design practice, House of Quinn, creates small-batch homeware using traditional and age-old craft techniques and practices to cultivate contemporary design narratives onto familiar objects. His work is grounded in uncomplicated - often re-purposed - materials and inspired by an abstract view of the places and things around us.
Inspired by transitional spaces and movement, House of Quinn presented in Summer 2022 a collection of handmade textile pieces for the home, at Mad Atelier - London.
Set within the vibrant and contemporary setting of the Mad Atelier Architectural practice and store, the House of Quinn capsule collection of interior textiles pieces reflected on space, movement, shape and form. Decorative, textile door panels, reminiscent of traditional portière, provide the backdrop to the collection. The collection also included sculptural textiles in the form of a kinetic mobile. Suspended abstract patchwork and appliqué panels float, gently travelling around one another to provide calming movement to sedentary spaces. Each piece in the collection washandmaden in Sussex, using textiles which have been collected, found and reused.
