What brought the Diverge collection to life was the reflection on the spirit of Bauhaus. By approaching the design development, prototyping, and launch processes as an act of ’gesamtkunstwerk’, the tiles, graphic design, photos, colours, various pieces of furniture (and all the people behind them) were unified as a whole, though each of them kept their own diversity.
Aimee Munro; ”Bold colour and clean geometry are the driving inspiration behind the Diverge collection. Just as the Bauhaus aimed to fuse art and architecture, Diverge at its core is a suite of tiles that are offered as building blocks to create three dimensional artworks.
The collection consists of five tiles: I-Strike, II-Find, III-Reach, IV-Meet and V-Dip. Diverge places strong emphasis on versatility and flexibility, with each tile creating presence enough to stand on its own, while also providing the opportunity to amalgamate any amount of the five tiles in endless combinations. Layering this with the diverse range of concrete pigments available allows the collection to be truly adaptable. ”
