Pratt Institute and twenty2 unveil their mind-bending 3D wallpaper collection at ICFF 2015

by , 05/20/15

The DEEP 3D wallpaper collection was born out of Pratt’s Pattern and Ornament graduate seminar, which was created by Yale architect and Pratt Institute professor Sarah Strauss. After serving as critics and mentors for the seminar over the past four years, twenty2 founders Kyra and Robertson Hartnett were able to team up with students in the course to bring their designs to life through this collaboration.

“As mentors, we helped challenge these talented students to rethink depth, dimension and pattern repeat,” said Kyra Hartnett. “Sarah’s vision of bringing these to life in 3D coupled with our custom printing expertise has created a collection which defies textile boundaries that you have to see to believe.”

Pratt and twenty2’s new line of wallpapers use anaglyph illustrations to achieve their 3D effect. The collection features five hypnotic designs that draw the viewer in with multiple layers, which is why it was given the name “DEEP”.

DEEP 3D wallpapers are digitally printed in the USA on clay-coated paper using eco-friendly, water-based inks. twenty2 also avoids waste by making the wallpapers to order as opposed to mass-printing them in advance. Prices range from $58-$110 per yard.
