With an aim to create uncomplicated pieces, through combining bold colours and simple shapes, LineDotStudio is a screen print and textile studio, based in South London. Taking initial inspiration from Mid-Century Architecture and geometric patterns, their hand-printed products fit effortlessly within the home.
As huge fans of her work, we were excited to meet the brains behind the brand, Casey Mollett, and learn more about her designs.
When did you decide to start your own business?
I joined Sonsoles Print Studio in Peckham last year, purely to release my frustration of lack of creativity in my day job and it went from there really. They are such a supportive and inspiring bunch of people at the studio, which definitely helps in pushing yourself to pursue what you enjoy. I started to get good feedback after taking part in a couple of local markets and thought maybe I can make a go of this.
How do you approach the design process; what is your starting point?
I might come across something in the everyday that sparks a pattern in my mind, usually very linear and pared back. I tend to simplify everything, seeing how few components can be used to create a pattern - anything unnecessary gets taken out. It tends to be the overall shape and repeat pattern that forms first, then the colour palette comes afterwards.
Do you have a particular design icon that inspires you?
That would have to be Armi Ratia, the founder of Finnish textile design house Marimekko. Their designs never fail to be a source of inspiration! Armi started Marimekko out of post-war Finland; her aim to inject colour and positivity in to people’s lives has continued into the present day, yet now on a much more international scale.
How would you describe your work?
Geometric is the obvious word to describe my work! I’m attracted to straight lines and simple block patterns, often inspired by mid century design.
Who would be your dream collaboration ?
It’s difficult to name one so I have a few! As my designs are quite flat and two dimensional, it would be really exciting to collaborate with a textile company that specialise in fabric construction, rather than surface pattern - working with textile designers that see pattern in a completely different way.
I was never a weaver at university but have always been intrigued and impressed by the process - it’d be a dream to design and create a collection of rugs with an innovative company like Kinnasand. Slow Down Studio and Rugs by Gur also come to mind, because of the energy and positivity that comes with their work.
What should we look out for in 2017?
I’m desperate to do some large scale printing and get some really bold and exuberant patterns going for an interiors project. My main hope for 2017 is a collaboration with a very talented knit designer, who also happens to be one of my best buddies.
