Hi.. lets get straight to it..
Oh My! have you seen the work of Hanna Nyman?
Hanna creates an incredibly beautiful range of lighting and interactive wallpaper - yes, that does say "interactive wallpaper"!
Hanna's Wallpaper is not only stunning it its mere printed form, but extraordinary in it's 3D form.
From what I've been able to find out (her website is in Swedish), the Wallpaper has a peel-able print which. when peeled, makes the pattern literally jump off the wall.. this in turn creates amazing shadows and reveals a hidden pattern beneath. It is up to the 'peeler' to decide when and where to stop peeling.
There is also another range of wallpaper that seems to have movable origami like sculptures that are magnetically attached to the paper creating a unique 3D pattern.
Hanna's lighting is just as intriguing - beautiful crafted, and in a similar origami style. - The lights look beautiful illuminated... - you have to have a look!!
