Coaster/ Placemat Net & Ball


Individual Net & Ball Coasters & Placemats

The pattern known as 'Net & Ball' was originally created by Peter Moro and Leslie Martin for the carpet in Royal Festival Hall when it opened at the Festival of Britain in 1951. It is based on a square wave seen with an oscilloscope - the visual representation of sound.

Peter Moro related how when he had drawn the 'net', Leslie Martin, the chief architect, added the 'ball', inspired by an apple he had on his desk.
