While designing the black and white pattern, Swip Stolk did not know what piece of furniture it would cover. The designer drew upon references from his own career rather than the object in question. Up close, the upholstery appears tattood; tattoos are an example of the power of symbolism that Swip Stolk has explored throughout his practice. As well as dragons, the print features imagery of peppers and other “hotstuffs,” all woven closely together so the pattern looks somewhat traditional from a distance. Swip Stolk called the final product a “cheeky cross-fertilization,” saying “What could be more beautiful than the cool “Penguin” by Theo Ruth from 1957 in a “Hotstuff” jacket by Swip Stolk from 2014?”
