For this month’s Designer Desktop, we’re bringing you into the colorful and graphic world of MAMIMU. Japanese artist and graphic designer June Mineyama-Smithson founded MAMIMU on a mission to inject optimism into the world through bold, joyful patterns. This month’s pattern, the Hackney Swimming Pool, is inspired by a Sunday morning when June caught herself staring at a swimming pool. Her observance of an everyday moment led her to discover the shapes, colors and patterns in the pool, leading her to create a graphic interpretation of the organic (the water ripples) and geometric (the tiles and gridlines) elements.

June chose a simple quote, “Choose optimism,” as an homage to her mission for creating MAMIMU. The Hackney Swimming Pool pattern is also available as a print in four different colorways.
