Joongle_the 2012 collection of Curious Boy draws its inspiration from the forest and its particular atmosphere. I feel that the balanced colours and mystic lighting of the woods are most appropriate and beneficial in today‘s contemporary spaces. Especially in the office and contract field I sense a lack of calm and yet energizing skins and surfaces. The office as an example for the urban jungle, is a place where it would be nice to have both: a balanced and tranquil environment together with thought sand mind stimulating elements in it. Patterns in forest – abstractions and perspective illusions which offer the eye space and vista – most needed where our sight is often limited to the screen in front of us.
