Light Emitting Wallpaper

At first glance, these walls look like they are reflecting light instead of actually producing it. The designer Jonas Sampson explained that the technology behind light emitting wallpaper is an old one, just applied in a different way.  “The back layer is a silver-based solution that conducts electricity, while the layer above this contains phosphorous pigments that light up. On top of this is a flexible, transparent ITO conductor layer, with regular wallpaper placed on top to act as the final, outwardly visual layer.”

Neat as it maybe, I wonder how usable this type of wallpaper actually is. When the wallpaper is turned ‘off’, it looks just like a regular wall. Maybe the designer could add visual detail to it as well, when it is in off mode. Either way, it looks like a fun thing to have on your walls.

Wovin Wall

Wovin WallThis tiled wall grid is a great way to add modern interchangeable design to your living space, along with lighting and color. The Wovin Wall System consists of a lightweight mounting grid which can be fixed to any wall or ceiling surface. The tiles, which are available in various finishes, are clipped into the grid in alternating directions to create the woven pattern.

Finishes include wood, laminate, metal, polypropylene (which is basically a thick opaque plastic), and even custom images if you want to get fancy. The tiles can be easily replaced or updated with a new color, finish, or tile shape to suit changes in seasons or style.

Place a light behind the tiles and you have an instant lighting fixture/ art piece that is modern and clean in design. The genius thing about the grid and panels is that you can hide any imperfections on your walls, so no “painting prep” needed. If you are not interested in wall decorating, try looking up. The grid can be fixed directly to ceilings without preparation in the same way as walls and translucent grid can be put in place of previous lighting fixtures to allow light through. The grid can also be suspended to create a false ceiling.
