Carnovsky, aka Milan-based design duo Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla, have created wallpaper that reveals different layers of imagery when viewed with coloured lighting. For example, green lighting will bring out a jungle of plants and African animals appear with the flick of a red switch. Currently the paper, called RGB, is decking out the walls of East London bar and gallery, DreamBags-JaguarShoes.
Obsessions are a wonderful thing. From a young age, Payton Cosell Turner loved wallpaper. Her obsession has turned into a business, creating hand-drawn, cheeky wallpaper that will capture the hearts of young and old alike. She also takes thousands of stickers and makes a custom wallpaper that is jaw-dropping.
Artist/illustrator Payton Turner does amazing hand-drawn wallpaper as well as this amazing installation he did with Brian Kaspr where he used thousands of stickers to create a wallpaper pattern.
Simon Lee specialises in amazing detailed bespoke wallpaper patterns. I am a big fan of his work and the characters that he produces. He makes a lot of Japanese video game and pop-culture references throughout his work, which makes you constantly refer back to his pieces to try and find other hidden details.
Swedish design firm Fine Little Day has created a line of wallpaper based on drawings by their 8-year-old son, Otto. They’ve got themselves some good design genes there.
Australian body artist Emma Hack creates the ultimate disappearance trick with her Wallpaper Collections Series. In this series Hack painted female models to blend in with Florence Broadhurst’s iconic wallpaper. All of the poses and props used in the images match the design and mood of the wallpaper.
These RGB wallpapers by Carnovsky, which debuted at Milan Design Week, consist of three separate patterns printed over each other. By shining red, green, or blue light on them, you can isolate and hide the different images.
