Painted Space

As more and more people started to work from home after the 2020 global pandemic, Marilyn our founder began to imagine everyone sat at home,  wearing a work shirt with pyjama bottoms, like corporate centaurs: half office, half couch. 


At the time, Zoom became the primary conferencing tool, and people started changing their backgrounds.

Our Founder particularly loved the outer space background; and that's how Cosmic Centaurs was born
