Patternity is a London based company comprised of a studio, an online design resource and a shop, all aimed at amplifying the discovery and application of patterns and surface design in everyday life. Patternity provides an up-to-date catalogue of patterns that are sourced from art, vintage, interiors, street style, textiles, photography, graphics, and nature. Launched by, Anna Murray and Grace Winteringham, an Art Director and Print Designer with a vision to encourage people to look around their world with new eyes; appreciating the limitless possibilities pattern can offer. The founders share their motivation for creating Patternity:

The idea for the site was born out of patterns we’ve encountered during foreign adventures, weekends spent rummaging around far-flung charity shops as well as in everyday life in the most mundane of places.  The vision is to create a global online hub for all things pattern-based; for people to consume, search, share and get inspired.  It’s also the shop window for our studio; where we’ll be working with other designers and brands to create bespoke pieces, and our shop; so everyone can take a pattern home with them.


By joining forces with designers and creatives from all industries, Patternity develops and produces original concepts, projects and products with a strong visual aesthetic. Recent work includes a wall on Supermarket Sarah, a home-based stall around the corner from Portobello Market overflowing with treasures. Another collaboration with Tour De Force features a Human Totem Pole “designed for a shaman with a sense of humour.” The Patternity team also conceived the Phase Bureau with furniture designer, Toby Winteringham. Fusing a bold pattern with the elements of form and function added a new twist. The Phase range will be debut at Milan’s Salone Satellite in April 2010, where the Phase Bureau will be on display alongside all the designs within the series.
