Haeckel Haus – rediscovering the roots of ecology through home decor
Haeckel Haus Co. is a dedication to the 19th century German biologist Ernest Haeckel, who coined terms such as ecology, stem cell and the kingdom Protista. His published artwork called Kunstformen der Natur (or Artforms of nature), showcases lithographs of species that he had discovered, described and named.
Haeckel’s work has now been revived through the company where his lithographs are printed on scarves, cushions, and canvasses.
One of the reasons that I started this blog was a reminder of my school days when we had to submit illustration assignments related to botany and anatomical subjects. I spent hours drawing and paying perfect attention to detail and accurate while aesthetic looking. Haeckel’s work as seen on home decor and fashion, is a trip down that memory lane.
And I couldn’t resist post this image of the couture swimwear the company creates.
Here is a well written article on the Haeckel’s lithographs from Cool Hunting.

And here questions of type such if honestly strike me not much as I wrote everything higher. It is visible you simply you don’t want to read all this. As my parrot does.
