Product: Thistle Cushion
Retailer: John Lewis
brand: John Lewis
Designer: Timorous Beasties
This decorative cushion celebrates the iconic thistle, long revered as a Celtic symbol of nobility. Its oversized line-drawn image is incredibly striking and – as is to be expected of its designers – has a rather dark and prickly edge.
With an approach that is experimental and even surreal, design duo Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons met at Glasgow School of Art and later formed Timorous Beasties.
The aesthetic clashes naturalistic images with a contemporary graphic style and unflinching commentary on the social and political times. The pair print and produce many of their wallpapers and hand-finished fabrics in their Scottish studio.
