Semper fortis – a contemporary Toile de Jouy
The beauty of the 18th century monochrome print and its motifs – often recording historic events, the events of the day,
cultural happenings or spreading political messages – inspired MONOGRAM to design a contemporary Toile, interpreting
this unprecedented event in the digital era. In this Jules Vernesque version of Luxembourg during the SARS-CoV-2-crisis,
the guiding principle is to “always stay courageous”. Adventurous hideaways become places to confine away from potential
danger, an escape from reality, love in times of a plague.
Semper fortis – a contemporary Toile de Jouy was created for Design Decameron,
a project by Cercle Cité in the Spring of 2020.
