Atelier Patterns is a North East UK based studio that reinvents traditional Japanese crafts as contemporary designs for interiors and bespoke commissions. Their products embody craft traditions using natural materials, sustainable making and digital technology. 

The studio’s work is informed by their expertise in paper crafts of origami, paper folding, and katagami, paper stencil patterns. With over ten years’ experience, Caroline and Edmond trained at some of the UK’s leading schools of art and design before honing their design skills by working in architecture practice and as a costume and set designer on award winning films and live performance.

They have previously designed and made installations and exhibitions for prestigious cultural and heritage organisations that include Southbank Centre, V & A Museum of Childhood, The Bowes Museum, British Council and Guildford Cathedral. In addition their work has been regularly supported by Arts Council England amongst others.

Their approach involves designing through making, experimenting and prototyping, drawing upon hand craft skills, whilst also making use of modern technology, such as laser cutting, to enhance their designs.
