Links We Love: September Edition feat. Vera Molnar

This month we’re inspired by a pioneer of computer art– Vera Molnar. Molnar is a French media artist who was born in Budapest in 1924.  Some of Molnar’s most incredible work started in 1968 when she first used a computer to make drawings, which she has continued to do for nearly 50 years.

 

Her abstract–oftentimes featuring geometric line work–is delicate and playful. For me, her work is reminiscent of thread, and her work evokes a strong tactile sensation, which makes it all the more interesting!  Using simple shapes, lines and colors, her work incorporates both amazing visual depth and simplicity, all at once. So, this month we are rounding up products, DIY projects or techniques that remind us of Molnar’s unique aesthetic.

 

 

These Shibori Grid Napkins by Little Arrow Design play with a geometric grid and color in a way very similar to Molnar’s work. Not only are they better for the environment, but would make a perfect addition to a fall tablescape.

 

If you’re looking for a way to spice up a room in your home, why not some unique and geometric wallpaper? I absolutely love this Channels Paper from Groundworks. It’s abstract but soft and comes in a simple black and white color palette.

 

Even if you’re not heading back to school this September, I always love stocking up on new office supplies. This beautiful letter-pressed notebook with a simple, subtle design is a nod to some of Molnar’s prints.

 

If you’re up for a new crafting project as the weather cools down, this DIY from Purl Soho would be the perfect technique for a simple line drawn abstract motif.

 

Better yet–make your own designs inspired by Vera Molnar! Download the Genue app, start drawing and then head over to a site like PAOM, which specialize in turning your digital designs into finished goods.
