About the Designs
Our designs are the culmination of J.Pera’s exploratory Fission process—they act as visual connections between seemingly incongruent ideas and moments. While every one of our designs is equally rich, vibrant and transformative, each contains a specific emphasis in formal quality. With that consideration, we have curated several of our designs in categories pertaining to each design’s strongest formal quality. These qualities being: Color Contrast, Form Contrast, Mélange, and Texture.
Our Design Categories
J.Pera designs are all equally vibrant with rich color—The classification of Color Contrast was created to debut certain designs which highlight dynamic color application.
No form or stroke is alike in any of J.Pera designs—Under the Form Contrast classification we present select designs that offer the most visually striking forms
J.Pera designs possess varying complexities that allow each design to differentiate itself from one another—The Texture classification is in place to present designs that showcase forms and strokes with visually strong textural qualities.
Every J.Pera design is the result of visual Fission—Mélange, as a category highlights designs which elegantly challenge the juxtaposition of color, form and texture.
Our Color Contrast designs are a venue for exploring color theory and application. Designs such as Istanbul No. 1—the one shown above—strongly present the relationships and dynamism that opposing colors possess. Utilizing a vibrant white background with strong mid-tone colors allows the design to flourish, showcasing the contrast between various color forms.
About Istanbul No. 1
Istanbul No. 1, like J.Pera is about contrasting things, such as richly layered colors: Imagine cool purple sumac and warm ochre saffron spices viewed against the blazing white walls of a Turkish bazaar.

Moments of subtlety are contrasted with large amounts of textured details in the design you see above. This is the essence of our form contrast design. Myanmar No. 1, features moments of soft and loud accents enabling a viewing experience that engages the eye and prompts exploration.
About Myanmar No. 1
J.Pera is about the softness of reason and loud accents of revelation. I will help you conjure the whispers of hand-weaving looms and loud motor boats on placid lakes. Myanmar No. 1 is simultaneously soft and loud, it is built on coexisting contrasts.
There are different ways to discuss texture. This classification highlights our passion for detail. Designs such as Thailand No. 1—the one shown above— look closely into the values of stroke and line. Details such as these are entirely created through the etching process.
About Thailand No. 1
Fissiparity, the tendency to break apart and layer together, is represented through this current take on traditional South East Asian Ikat textile design. In Thailand No. 1, strokes and lines express the linkages between the ancient Siamese capital of Ayutthaya and modern capital of Bangkok. I hope you may envision the strokes of the old with the lines of the new.
Every J.Pera design is the result of visual Fission. Melange as a category highlights designs which elegantly challenge the juxtaposition of color, form and texture.
About Venice No. 1
J.Pera is about contemporary experiences which have histories; sipping a morning espresso at Hotel Arcadia. Wandering through contemporary architectural designs exhibited in historic buildings for the Venice Biennale. I wish you your own history that begins each new day with a contemplative sip of coffee and thoughts of moody lagoons.
