A SNAPCHAT OF STEALTHY DECAY

The aesthetic value of imperfection lies within the fragile and inconsistent condition. Repaper is a snapshot in time showing the stealthy decay of wallpaper peeling off the wall, illustrating the crumbling beauty of a formerly representative, now decaying room. The evidence of decay is being transferred into a new context and turns into new qualities and functions in these designs.

The decorative wall paper becomes a storage space by peeling off the wall and spreading into the room.  A convex surface arching out from the wall right under the ceiling can be used for storing books and boxes. Another piece of wallpaper seems to curl itself up from below, creating a rack that holds small items such as gloves, mobile phones, keys or letters.
