DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE
Optical non-woven paper wallpaper
A French invention, panoramic wallpaper has gone through several waves of crazes, most often related to the health of the wallpaper industry. Its very first appearance goes back to the end of the 18th century, its expansion to the Restoration and its last breaths in the 1970/1980s.Considered to be old-hat at the end ofthe 1980s by an exaggeration of its initial interest, to open a artificial window to a realistic or fantasyexterior, the style disappeared with the photographic models caricaturing the natures of the «Four Seasons» (snow-capped summits, flamboyant sunsets, etc.)Scenic Wallpapers propose rehabilitating and reintroducing monumental decors with panoramic wallpaper by making a clean sweep of the photographic tracks explored in the past and by proposing about 10 artists, designers or graphic artists to create contemporary decors which today can justify rehabilitating this type of decor. Printed on high-quality intissé paper, each decor is 3,72 metres wide by 3 metres high and comes in the form of eight strips to be assembled. All the decors can be cut downwards and across to adapt to all sizes of walls. Can be cut to fit your wall dimensions.
"The Association pour la Promotion du Papier peint (A3P), the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and the publisher Domestic are relaunching the Wallpaper Lab. Designers and graphic designers were selected to give their vision of wallpaper. The artists will have their designs shown on the walls of the contemporary department of the museum alongside works in the permanent collection and in your home ! These limited edition artist wallpapers translate their studio works ""into conceptually heroic wallpaper. They are challenged to pull the domestic world of wallpaper into their own aesthetic gravitational center."
