FRIDAYfinds! – The Future of Wallpaper
I see a lot of new products every day! From reps who bring their lines to the studio to
my searches on the internet.
But it’s rare when I discover something that stops me in my tracks!
When was the last time you thought about wallpaper?
It’s coming back in a big way but not like you remember…
|Trove Chroma wallpaper|
Have you ever seen anything like this?
You are looking at the future of wallpaper!
This line is the brainchild of a pair of Chicago Institute of Art graduates, Randall Buck and Jee Levin.
They are turning the industry on its head with their innovative designs.
The Chroma wallpaper above, with a 6′ by 12′ repeat, is based on photographs that have been
enlarged and manipulated to the point of abstraction.
These are actually photos of people on a busy New York street.
The images are configured in a helix pattern reminiscent of DNA.
What makes the paper so intriguing is that it captures real-time human activity in a totally new way.
The more you look at it the more you become connected to the imagery.
