Horror vacui!!! (latin: fear of empty spaces) describes the desire in art, but above all in painting, to fill all empty spaces with images or details.Whenever Mrs Redfries sees a piece of blank paper, it’s bye-bye good mood and hello unsettling feeling! The same disturbing sensation that a traffic warden without a parking ticket, an astronaut without zero gravity or indoor umbrellas would know all too well. A gaping feeling of absolutely emptiness – the horror of the void. Now whenever Mrs Redfries comes across a blank piece of paper, Mr Redfries is quick to act, plopping her down in front a huge selection of colours. And soon, the nasty voids give way to small works of art and the horror vacui is successfully conquered once more. // redfries is a vibrant imaginative product from the graphic designers Daniela Rosenhammer and Stipe Dujmovic. Born out of the love for paper products, a collection of lovingly designed and high-quality greeting cards, postcards, posters, art prints, notepads and pins was brought to life. Sustainable, beautiful and colourful – Made in Germany.
