You’ve seen other wall coverings designs on archtopia but, what you’re about to see, is a collection of wallpapers and wall coverings that simply takes your breath away and gives you a sensation of fresh and new. So stay tuned and enjoy. Some of the Wall Coverings were the results of some idea contest and they might seem futuristic and impossible, but don’t let that get in the way of your imagination. The following images are for inspirational purposes only.
So here we go with the first finding in wall covering:
1. Camila Dietrich’s Wall Coverings
Ms. Diedrich wanted to create a wall covering ‘which used real light without having to make use of too much technology. The design, which has a fibre optic appeal, creates a luminous floral pattern, bringing nature into the home and casting a soft glow through any interior space.’ Glow + luminous + nature = major swoon
2. Milan Preview | Light Emitting Wallpaper
Although we’ll have to wait till the Milan fair to find out the exact technology, this Light-Emitting Wallpaper harkens back to recent products exploring digital paper by Miquel Mora, part of the Flat Futures project– developed by the Royal College of Art Design Interactions Department– showcased at the MoMA’s ‘Design and the Elastic Mind’ exhibition.

14. Fly Sky High
dutch designer christiaan postma designed this wallpaper to do double duty as a giant calendar. the design
merges the properties of wallpaper with the functionality of the calendar to create a wall that is a true reflection
of our busy schedules.
16. 3d Wallpaper
17. The strømer
located in a pedestrian tunnel in norway, the strømer is an interactive led wall which turns shadow into light.
the installation is based on architect stig skjelvik’s ‘dobpler’ prototype. as pedestrians walk by the wall,
a camera captures their silhouette and displays the same shape on the wall in lights. because movement
activates the wall, it remains dark until someone is sensed nearby. this illuminates the walkway for pedestrians
and saves energy by turning off when unnecessary.

19. Analog Nights
20. Bamboo Print
Designed exclusively for blik by the Spring 2007 intern group of the Working Class Studio division of the pioneering Savannah College of Art and Design, these decals showcase a spirited reference to Savannah flora and fauna, as well as the architectural details of the wrought ironwork and moldings found in the historic district.
