  1. A story by Grow House Grow designer, Katie Deedy: "Jeanne Villepreux-Power (1794-1871) has been heralded as the "mother" of aquariophily, and was a pioneering female macalogist (the study of mollusks). Raised in the small village of Juillac, France, she made her way into the world at the age of 18 by walking to Paris where she became an accomplished dressmaker. She achieved initial fame following the celebrated creation of a wedding gown for a Bourbon princess; this led to an advantageous marriage to James Power, a wealthy English merchant who took her to Sicily where they resided for over two decades. Freed from the constraints of supporting herself, Jeanne was able to cultivate her love of the natural world, particularly the rich ocean life that surrounded her on the island. She immersed herself in the landscape, spending her days collecting and recording everything from shells and fossils to insect wings. In order to strengthen her scientific observations, Jeanne invented what is now her most famous achievement: the world's first aquarium. Three different models were developed to aid in her delicate work: the first, a "classic" glass aquarium, was built for study within her home. Two more, both anchored in the nearby sea, were of glass surrounded by protective cages. One housed smaller mollusks, while the second could be dropped to different depths to accommodate larger mollusks. Among Jeanne's distinguished discoveries were the unusual mating habits of the Argonauta argo (a species of octopus that was of particular interest to her, and one that fueled over 11 years of her studies), as well as her suggestion that rivers suffering from a loss of aquatic life could be repopulated by introducing tank-raised fish to sustainable levels. As a scientist she was accepted as the only female member of the Catania Accademia, was an affiliate of over a dozen other academies, and was the author of numerous scholarly papers. Jeanne's pattern traces her steps from humble, lace-stitching tailor to her hard-won aquatic scholarship, embodied in an elegant, ascending mollusk scallop."

  2. A story by Grow House Grow designer, Katie Deedy: "Mary Ward (1827-1869) was encouraged to nurture her love of nature from a young age. Born into to a renowned scientific family in Co. Offaly, Ireland, she was educated at home with her sisters and by the age of three had developed a penchant for collecting bugs. These insects became the subject of study for Mary, and with the help of a magnifying glass she began meticulously drawing and reproducing their details. By a stroke of luck, astronomer James South discovered the drawings, and was so impressed with her talent that he persuaded her father to invest in a microscope. This opportunity was a turning point in Mary's life. Owning her own microscope allowed her to transform her love of insects into full-blown, self-taught microscopy. She spent her time reading everything she could get her hands on regarding the subject, and became so skilled that her knowledge surpassed that of most experts. Over the years she wrote a series of books, of which A World of Wonders Revealed by the Microscope (1858) was reprinted eight times. It became a go-to student text in the field of microscopy, which considering her sex, is truly representative of her talent. Further distinctions include her work as an illustrator for scientific publications, and her significant status as one of just three female recipients of the Royal Astronomical Society's newsletter (of the other two women, one was Queen Victoria). True to her love of scale, this pattern blends late-Georgian silhouettes with over-sized insects; an entomologist's dream."

  3. Frequency is the measurement of a recurring event in time. The interval during which a recurring sequence of events takes places is a cycle. The world is a composition of parallel frequencies and cyclical events; the sounds of waves crashing, the stages of animal life, the phases of the moon, the seasonal migration of birds, the beat of the human heart. The result of recurring events in nature generates a stunning energy, perpetually information our sense. Through subtle shifts of movement and scale, the Jill Malek wallpaper designs are inspired by the fluctuating patterns of frequency found in nature. As the name suggests, the Luci Della Città pattern is inspired by the flickering lights of the city. It is part of the Jill Malek frequencies collection, and is one of more to come that illustrates "urban frequencies."
