For those of you who have a hard time choosing between the minimalist aesthetic of unadorned concrete, and the warm, decorative aesthetic of wallpaper – your heart need be torn no longer. Concrete Blond’s Walled Paper allows brutalists to indulge their inner rocoquette, by transforming concrete into a lavish landscape of patterns and textures.
Ceramic designer Eric Barrett founded Concrete Blond in 2002 in reaction to the prevailing conservatism in the use of concrete in interior and exterior spaces. The designer creates permanent wall castings with traditional wallpaper prints embossed onto an entire surface of concrete. The concrete castings come with a variety of sizes, finishes and patterns to choose from. Barrett focuses on interior and exterior wall cladding, flooring and custom concrete castings.
Concrete Blond showed off their unique product at this year’s 100% Design tradeshow in London. Walled Paper is currently being utilized in Barrett’s various interior and architectural projects.
