RGB Wallpaper

Yes you read the title correctly, RGB wallpaper.  This particularly creative output is the product of Italian design studio Carnovsky and has been created for the Milan branch of Janelli & Volpi.

Each wallpaper style offers an utter visual delight in overlapping illustrations and colours, revealing one of three designs depending whether you shine red, green or blue light on them.

I can see real potential in expanding the application of this technique.  Everything from colour changing interiors in bars and clubs, to public spaces that could seemingly alter their environment at the flick of a switch.

The lucky folk in Berlin can go along to the Johanssen Gallery until February next year to see these pieces first hand, with the stunning addition of a similarly themed series on playing card based prints.

Carnovky’s Francesco Rugi explains “in each there are printed three different playing cards: The overlapping of colours mixes up the forms so that it is difficult to recognize which figure is represented, an enigma that can be solved just through the use of one of the coloured filters.”

If anyone is stuck for a Christmas present for me then one of these beautiful sets would go a long way to earning my affection.
