As already stated we sadly can’t attend this years Stockholm Design Week: Too much work, too little time.
Fortuitously thanks to the power of the internet (@Design studio Bernstrand & Co, pay attention) we can have a look at whose doing what where.
One product that caught our collective eye is Off the Wall by Kerdema Design.
Marketed as being “3D wallpaper” it obviously isn’t – as 3D wallpaper exists, is called wood-chip wallpaper and has been marketed since 1864.
Off the wall is technically a system that “hides” shelves behind the wallpaper and in doing so creates the most delightful storage solutions.
The shelves are formed from thermoformed acrylic sheets and come in various forms; including a dust catching book stand. The wallpaper is printed-on-demand, how modern, in Stockholm and is currently available in 15 different patterns.
We really are very impressed with Off the Wall, not just because the product breaks the monotonous predictability of walls, but also because it allows, indeed forces, new ways of thinking about relations hip with shelves, walls. And wall paper.
And the effect is visually delightful.#
