CUSTOM / INSTANT / TEMPORARY / PRINT IN-THE-MOMENT
Reflecting everyday living spaces and ways of life Ruth Spitzer and Sarah Dorkenwald designed wallfurniture with today’s mobile society in mind. Wallfurniture is a practical and innovative wall covering kit to move easy and to design fast and cheap a temporary home.
According to Oscar Wilde’s quote “illusion is the first of all pleasures,” we design assemblage interior settings printed on paper to feel truly settled even if the room is completely empty.
the illusion of invented space and the play with everyday objects and design classics provokes also the question if we still need ‘real’ produced furniture or if digital printing techniques offer the answer for unconventional, modern, and even sustainable living solutions.
The magazine ‘Blueprint’ wrote: “papers over the gaps. if you want designer furniture because–well, because it just looks so chic, but you can’t afford it and you don’t have the space for it anyway. what better solution than to make like a modern day tromp d’oeil artiste, and use a picture instead?”
