A technological approach to Islamic Patterns & Floral Arabesques
Geometric patterns and floral arabesques along with calligraphy are the pillars of Islamic decorative arts. At Nomad Inception, we strive to advance these forms of art by introducing modern technology to the design and fabrication process. This technological approach enables us to make the art form available everywhere in the world in the form of ready-to-install fine architectural products.
Islamic geometric patterns relate to the crystallographic mineral domain in nature. A number of polygons are tessellated forming motifs that use symmetry to cover an ideally infinite surface. We create original designs several orders of magnitude larger than the ones possible until now, respecting every rule of the age-old art form.
Interlace embellishments are infinite lines that run along the sides of each shape of the motif abiding by one particular rule: each line must travel alternately above and below each line crossed, adding an even greater degree of complexity. We master this and other traditional embellishment techniques.
They are an idealized vision of the vegetal realm in nature, showing vines, leafs and floral motifs that not necessarily resemble their natural equivalents. There are a number of styles and techniques and the legacy of ancient artisans and craftsmen is vast. We design drawing inspiration from styles originating in different periods and places as well as modern and contemporary floral styles.
The richest and most colorful designs are the ones involving a crossover of Islamic geometric design and floral arabesques. They can be combined in several ways, and even on interlaced designs. We design combined motifs with the same qualities as we do geometric and floral designs.
