The restaurant Kolo in Aarhus wanted to have their toilet updated, and reached out to artists Iris Bakker to help with the task. Kolo is a 'night' restaurant founded by two guys who wanted to implement an allotment garden vibe in the dining experience. Kolo is short for the danish word 'kolonihave' which means allotment garden. They serve high quality food and organic wines, and the mural naturally had to reflect this.

'Kolo' wanted their toilets to match the rest of the vibe in the restraurant, and worked cloely with Iris to come up with a design. The illutration is based on an earlier piece that Iris made, and draws inspiration from a accordion-folded sketch book that she exhibited in Croatia.

Iris worked with overlaying female bodies on the wall, as if they were sketches in a folded up sketch book. This creates a coherence in the final mural, and there's a sort of interaction between the different female bodies. The illustration wraps around the walls of the toilets and in the hallway between them.
