Typology wallpaper 0901 by Wall & Deco

‘Typology’ is one of many intriguing wallpaper designs from Wall & Deco’s 2010 ‘Life’ Collection.

The pattern seems to be three-dimensional, an optical illusion that gives the impression that the wall consists of type blocks.

However, it’s just vinyl wallpaper with a great graphic design.

'Hat-Hat' by Katrin Greiling

Commissioned in connection to the Wallpaper exhibition “Handmade” in Milan, the German-Swedish designer Katrin Greiling created this new piece of furniture for both sitting and sleeping, inspired by the bedouins way of furnishing their tents: “when the tent is set up and the carpets rolled out the saddle is taken off the camel and put inside the tent and functions as leaning support whilst sitting on the floor. The name ‘Hat-Hat’ derives from the phrase the Bedouins use to get the camels to move.”

”To live in a foreign culture presents fantastic opportunities to apply my own Scandinavian expression on the new, the result is unexpected design related discoveries and subjective interpretations” says Katrin Greiling.

It is not the first time Katrin Greiling finds inspiration in nomadic culture. Deviding her time between Dubai and Stockholm, she is working with both Swedish and international producers. Her sofa Bedouin was for example used in the United Emirates pavillion during the Venice biennal last year.

'Westwood' by Camilla Diedrich

'Westwood' by Camilla Diedrich

These are the two new wallpapers by the Swedish designer Camilla Diedrich. As one of the first textile designers to start cutting holes in textiles and structuring them in terms of negative space, Diedrich’s early works related more to deconstruction architecture than they did to fabric design.

With ‘Westwood’ – a wallpaper for corners – she once more underlines her architectural approach.

Stone wallpaper by Architects Paper at the 100%Design

Concrete walpaper made of concrete powder

The German manufacturer Architects Paper presents an extraordinary wallpaper at the 100%Design in London this year. A thin layer of stone material is applied on cotton weave. Depending on the sort of stone the layer is either made of stone powder or – and this is really sophisticated – a thin layer of the natural surface of the stone is transmitted through a chemical process directly on the backing textile. Due to naturally occurring rock formations within the structure and colours, each drop has the property of being slightly different which offers no reason for complaint. Each drop is unique.
