Floating Leaves is the result of a collaboration between three Copenhagen-based design companies; Moebe x Paper Collective x Norm Architects.
This series of botanic photography has been created especially for the Moebe Frame, and is produced through a special printing technique onto transparent film.
Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm Architects uses a rewording of a passage from Wabi Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets and Philosophers to explain the idea behind the new prints:
''The Sabi Leaves photos are inspired by the gathering of botanic samples and classic botanic illustration. Playing with an element of decay, the Sabi Leaves also become iconic expressions of time frozen. They are visibly vulnerable to the effects of weathering and have recorded the sun, wind, rain, heat and cold in a language of discoloring, rust, tarnish, stain, warping, shrinking, shriveling and cracking. Their nicks, chips, bruises, scars, dents, peeling and other forms of attrition are a testament to their history. Through the transparency of print and frame the leaves get a unique sense of multi-dimensionality rarely achieved in printed products.''
