The Lois O'Hara Collection From Newmor
Updated: Nov 28, 2021
We’re pleased to introduce our vibrant and playful collaboration with mural artist, Lois O’Hara.
As part of Newmor's ongoing range of collaborations with artists and designers, we are proud to launch a colourful and joyful collection of large scale digitally printed murals designed by Lois O’Hara, specifically for the commercial interiors market.
Lois O’Hara is a Brighton-based artist and designer who creates joyful hand-painted murals, and illustrations. Her signature aesthetic uses wavy shapes and patterns in bold colour combinations, and she has applied this to all kinds of products, from water bottles to buses, exercise studio interiors to window displays, and now wallcoverings! She has partnered with a number of local and international brands already, including Habitat, Sure, Pantone, Shaw Contract, Patterns, and Brighton & Hove Council.
Working mainly in public spaces, O’Hara is interested in the positive effects colour can have on people and places. She comments: ‘I’m interested in capturing the fluidity of an image in motion.’ Working with colour that pops out from often dull urban landscapes, Lois’s work explores how inserting bright splashes of colour can have a positive effect on people, places, and mental health.
There are five designs in the collection, they are all called Keep it Moving and labelled from A-E. They all feature Lois’ signature sweeping curves and bold colour combinations. As always, they can be recoloured and printed onto any of our wallcoverings, and we can work on bespoke designs with Lois too!
Lois commented – “It’s been a real pleasure working with Newmor and having the opportunity to showcase my work in a new format. To see my designs in different interior spaces has been exciting! I hope the artwork inspires others to think more positively.”
We launched the Newmor Designer collection as part of its commitment to bridging the gap between artists, craftspeople and commercial interiors. Artists such as painter and fashion designer, Iona Crawford; interior design duo 2LG; weaver Ptolemy Mann; artist Stephen Walter; and The Patternistas are currently represented. All of the designs can be custom coloured, scaled, and printed onto any of Newmor’s wallcoverings, including metallics, textures and window films.
We are launching the Lois O’Hara collection at a time when designers are reconsidering the use and functionality of public spaces. It’s so important that our time spent in offices, hotels, restaurants, and healthcare interiors is positive and uplifting, and we believe Lois’ joyful designs are the perfect addition to our collection for that very reason.
