When stripes became high fashion some hundred years ago, the lines had to be symmetrical and repeated with perfection. A lot has happened since then.Today we're living in the golden age of stripes. Let your eyes linger on the striped coffee cup and you will instinctively know it is by Alfredo Häberli, with no resemblance to either Andy Warhol or Jean Paul Gautier and his sharp black and white lines. Stripes play with our minds and to day we no longer perceive them as separate lines, but rather as one pattern. Similar to the way it works in nature where fields or woods come in all kinds of different shapes and yet somehow manage to create a united harmony.This wallpaper from the 21st century is a virtual digital dream with no strict repetition as far as the eye can see.
