Treated like a collage combining styles and multiple eras “Wild Orchard Collage”, large panoramic wallpaper suggests a wild orchard where an “art deco” orange tree and an “art and craft” lemon tree combine their distinct character with that of a plum tree borrowed from the botanical prints of 18th century. Finally, like a Japanese print, a stream ripples through an eclectic flowerbed like escapes from a naive painting.
The “Wild Vibrations” carpet accompanies this panorama. Tribal and secessionist inspiration, it depicts the banks of a fierce river with heady reflections and swirls.

Re imagining this ceiling fresco as a wall covering, Gjoen plays with perspectives made famous in the renaissance; inviting the viewer in.

The fine surface-breaking reveals an even more valuable surface made of precious metal sheets, a metaphor for this troubled time we are going through. The design recalls ‘Kintsukuroi’, the Japanese art of repairing breakage with gold and precious materials, a philosophy that treats breakage and repair as part of history, symbolizing resilience and a new beginning.
