Welcome back to Clocking In, a video series in which Curbed explores one individual's artistic contributions to the great, wide "wheel" of design; in other words, cool stuff cool people create. Care to nominate someone noteworthy? Do send a note.
The series continues with Shanan Campanaro, who parlayed her background in fine arts and graphic design to found the eco-friendly, artisanal design studio Eskayel in 2008. Campanaro works out of her Brooklyn home, where she channels visual inspiration (often from travel photos and the "quiet, beautiful things you find when you get out of the city," she says) into soft, ethereal paintings that are then digitally transformed into wall coverings (printed on a few types of environmentally sensitive papers), organic fabrics, pillows, artwork, rugs, and other types of decor. At the moment the brand's collection includes more than 200 different patterns, and Campanaro finds great fulfillment in knowing the final products will "be connected to someone's everyday life, because they're living with it in their space," she says. "Where you live is definitely your sanctuary." Above, have a look.
