What if your wallpaper provided power for your house? Working in collaboration with Brooklyn’s Flavor Paper, UM Project just unveiled an amazing line of conductive wallpaper that displays embedded circuitry instead of hiding it in your walls. The coolest part is that the funky wall panels rely on human touch to complete each circuit, allowing you switch on your lights and appliances in a whole new way.
The wall panels feature conductive, water-based ink circuits connected to metal strips and copper dots. One simple touch completes each circuit, turning connected electronics on or off. The wall coverings combine 2D and 3D elements to create one very unique design feature for homes or offices.
The conductive wallpaper was recently showcased at the collective design fair during a NYCxDESIGN event. Although just a conceptual design at the moment, the innovative product could send some serious waves through the world of wall decor.
