Mini Moderns do stationery

Company bring their distinctive patterns to the home office and will be showing at Top Drawer 2018

January 2018 sees British interiors brand Mini Moderns enter a new product category with the launch of stationery and desk accessories. Working with stationery experts Portico Designs, Mini Moderns have revisited some favourite patterns that have only previously been available as wallpaper.

Mini Moderns founders, Keith Stephenson and Mark Hampshire, feel that stationery products have a great synergy with their designs: 'Everything we do starts life as a wallpaper design, so creating a range of largely paper-based products means that there’s an instant synergy with our core home furnishing ranges.'

The hero print of the collection is P.L.U.T.O. - a striking geometric design from Mini Moderns’ Hinterland collection. The stationery collection also sees the welcome return of design duo’s first ever print, Do You Live in a Town. Finally, the brand’s signature Bungalow icon is peppered throughout the range, used as a repeat pattern and as an instantly recognisable icon on zip pulls and colourful powder coated book markers.

As you would expect, the home office collection features Mini Moderns signature colours, with products largely grouped in three colour blocks: Mustard, Tangerine Dream and their distinctive turquoise, known as Lido.

Mark and Keith clearly enjoyed the creative process of developing the range. Keith is particularly fond of the mix of materials they have achieved: 'As well as paper products, which naturally embody the spirit of our wallpapers, we have introduced some icon wooden pieces, like the Tablet Holder and the Perpetual Desk Calendar. Printed in our P.L.U.T.O. design, these items look stunning and are made from 100% sustainably sourced beech wood.'

Mark continues: 'One of the things that we particularly love about the range is the attention to detail. Working with the expert team at Portico, we have managed to integrate lovely touches like debossing and foil detailing into the products. The whole range perfectly reflects our home furnishing ethos – accessible and joyful.'

Charlie Bassil, sales Director at Portico Designs Ltd sums up: 'We are thrilled to unveil our biggest launch this spring - our Mini Moderns stationery & gift collection. Months in the making, this playful 20-piece collection includes super stylish wooden desk accessories and stationery.'
