Submaterial produces thoughtful and precisely hand-crafted interior accessories for modern environments. Pared down to essential elements of pattern and texture, these works explore the territory between objects of art and objects of design. Natural materials such as leather and sustainable felt and cork are fashioned by hand into beautifully surfaced works. Each wall hanging or panel design has an underlying modularity which allows it to be recreated as a custom work, changing color or scale to suit the intended environment.
Since 2001, designer David Hamlin has focused his attention on creating modern wall decor, modular screens and original artworks for architects and interior designers. His Construct wall hanging series introduced at ICFF was celebrated for its innovative use of materials and was featured in Elle Decor, Metropolis, Architectural Record, Interior Design, Azure and The New York Times.
