Rhoko x Aeand Studio | Laurens

A collaboration with Aeand Studio, each screen-printed design is an homage to some of our favourite sculptors of the 20th Century. This design is influenced by our love of modernist French sculptor: Henri Laurens.

Laurens is a french artist and sculptor who adopted a Cubist style after meeting Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Juan Gris, and Fernand Léger, and adopted this vision to this sculpture. He used organic curving forms largely influenced by his affinity for archaic sculptures, particularly Cycladic sculptures of Ancient Greece and African masks. Like his contemporary: Brancusi’s, his sculptures appear as smooth, organic, and abstracted mutations of the compositional materials themselves.

Each piece is screen printed by hand using plastic-free water-based inks and printed on strong and durable paper which is 100% cotton rag from recycled t-shirt offcuts. Aeand Studio prefers to work with a small independent business Khadi, established in 1980 who has been working with their Indian paper mill for over 20 years.
