Most of us have to come up with new ideas and insights in order to stay ahead of our competition. Creativity is often linked to specific environments, people, skills, cultures or methods. How can we shake up our traditional thinking and behaviour and instead move towards innovative thinking? Is there anyone we can learn or get inspired from?
Artists and designers have a master ability to transcend traditional ideas and their creativity can be inspirational for anyone who is interested in exploring new ideas in order to achieve progress.
A fine example is the French artist Frederique Morrel who revitalizes vintage tapestries by transforming them into unique works of fantastical embroidered taxidermy. Frédérique Morrel, is an artistic adventure designed to explore paradise lost and the animals of Eden, using as raw material the discarded popular tapestries found in corners of yard sales and thrift shops.
The creations are carefully “re-made” by hand in France using fiberglass, taxidermy moulds and textiles. The ‘artifacts’ are designed to re-enchant the world using materials that tell stories of simple, ideal happiness. In 2014, the Hermes boutique at Madison Avenue New York invited Frederique Morrel to create their window displays in a specially designed event called "La Nature du Foyer", creating a touch of fairy-tale magic.
This is something that inspires us.
We would love to hear what inspires YOU?
