Wes Anderson’s Symmetry
“Wes Anderson’s films have generosity and beautiful emotion”, says Tilda Swinton, “that’s not around much anymore.” As in film so in interior design. Wes Anderson’s hallmark use of balance puts symmetry front and centre. After years of breaking up the pair, classic harmony feels right.Take the Stella Artois commercial. The modernity feels new again when mirrored and warmed with cognac and red and enlivened with swimming fish.
We mustn’t be afraid of quirkiness. It’s a key to creating magic. Wes knows how to keep it light – grrr!
Symmetry pulled this long living room together. We printed a second architectural image mirroring the first. Inspired by Wes, we emphasized the symmetry by using the swedish dressers to flank the fireplace. Two disparate ends now work together.
