NEW BRAND JUPITER 10
We catch up with fashion designers Bruno Basso and Christopher Brooke as they get ready to launch the contemporary interiors label that all pattern lovers should know
Tell us about your fashion careers?
We started working together in 2003 as Basso & Brooke, and were the first designers to show a fully digitally printed collection of clothing. We exhibited at London Fashion Week, as well as at various events around the world, for over a decade together.
Why the move into interiors?
We’ve always loved interiors, and have done several projects for brands such as Harrods, The Shop at Bluebird, Habitat and Graham & Brown, as well as private commissions. In interiors, pattern and prints have more longevity than they do in fashion – they’re not as restricted to seasons.
What’s your design ethos?
Maximalism! As with our fashion label, there’s a joyous narrative to our work. We question everything through pattern and colour.
Why did you choose to focus on wallcoverings?
With wallpaper, you can dramatically transform any type of space and give it personality. We’ve seen clients using our designs in lots of different ways – fully wallpapered rooms are our favourites, but we’ve also seen them on walls and ceilings, as well as inside bookcases.
What’s next for Jupiter 10?
We’ll be launching a collection of fabrics to coordinate with the wallpapers, and also rugs and tiles with the same designs.
