Design firm ZNAK made me think about wallpaper in a whole new way. Never thought I’d say that; it kind of seems like wallpaper has gone through all possible iterations. At least until, you know, it starts changing in response to our moods or the weather or the size of our bank accounts or something.
So what’d they do?
They made tearable wallpaper. There are a few configs with different shapes — and each design can be done up in, like, infinite ways.
Okay, so maybe not infinite.
I think it’s coolest that you can combine the wallpaper with an already-painted wall — or even over a smeared and spattered wall. It’s got me thinking. Is there a DIY, cheap-ass alternative to this? Could you use a pounce wheel to perforate a non-woven material along a stencil or a carbon line to do what you want?
