Wunderkammer is literally translated from German as a ‘room of wonder’. Wunderkammer is a collection created by our Junior Designer, Bonny Breytenbach. Bonny studied at Leeds Art University and became proficient in printed textiles and surface pattern design.
As a freelancer, she created an impact with designs in a variety of fields, providing her with diverse experience. With the Wunderkammer Collection, Bonny wanted to portray the spirit of wonder surrounding elements of the natural environment.
The traditional Wunderkammer featured naturalia, referring to elements created by the earth and items drawn from nature, mirabilia (unusual natural phenomena) and other objects or images of interest to explorers of the time.
This collection features hand-rendered images from 18th- and 19th-century naturalists and botanists.
