Carl Robinson’s First Edition, an ode to his 25 years of superior artistry and design, follows in the footsteps of his grandfather and father before him. An avid believer that design should reflect all aspects of the surrounding environment, his artistic approach gives flight to creative genius, the driving force responsible for propelling his global collection.
In his Second Edition, a stunning sequel to his first collection, Carl invites us to explore the distinctive colors, dignified silhouettes and visually seductive inspiration found throughout the great city of London. Harmoniously balancing design elements evocative of the city’s elegant history as well as its modern presence as a cosmopolitan masterpiece, Carl Robinson artfully interprets an undeniably superior city in this sought-after collection.
His Third Edition, Specialty Papers, delivers an exotic blend of craftsmanship and materials. Delicately screen-printed and hand-painted patterns, earthy grasscloth, sumptuous silks and shimmering metallic threads yield undeniably high-end, sophisticated and elegant wallpapers that cater to both residential and commercial application.
Carl Robinson’s design legacy taught him to always recognize greatness in even the most ordinary things. In his Fourth Edition, Atmosphere, Robinson draws us to the exquisite if oft hidden beauty of our past and present surroundings. Inspiration and homage is derived from a cultural history full of style and invention; everything from the gritty colors of oxidized metals to sleek lines of a simple bicycle wheel breathes life into this revolutionary collection that captures beauty from eras old and new.
The Fifth Edition, Reflect, an opulent collection made from non-woven mylar substrate with luminous metallic finish, is very close to finished and should be released by year-end. Individually hand-mixed inks are printed to add sumptuous texture and create a matte/shine effect. Reflect’s seductive color palette of rich golds, shimmering silvers and mineral neutrals gives a spectacular finish to this statement collection.
