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.
