Bloom on The High Line NYC

We recently donated our Bloom 3D wallpaper to Friends of the High Line’s Teen Arts Council a paid education and job-training program composed of 12-15 local New York City teens between the ages of 14-20 who design, plan, and produce two large-scale events on the High Line each summer. The TAC teens spend six months meeting with cultural producers, attending cultural events across the city, and working in teams to develop their own programs from start to finish – including selection of talent, marketing, outreach, and event production. For their second summer party, titled Next Stop, the TAC teens selected Bloom to use as a backdrop throughout...

DEEP 3D in the Press

We had such a blast debuting our new DEEP 3D wallpaper at ICFF.  Sharing the interactive 3D experience with other designers was truly gratifying, as so many people embraced the idea and had fun sporting the classic Anaglyph 3D glasses. The press at ICFF was also intrigued and excited by the concept of 3D wallpaper. Yuka Yoneda describes the experience on Inhabit, “Out of all the eye-popping designs at this year’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair, there was only one that literally jumped out at us. A partnership between Pratt Institute and twenty2, the DEEP 3D wallpaper booth beckoned showgoers in with its mesmerizing anaglyph patterns designed by Pratt students.” As Bryn Smith of Core 77 explained, “A...

DEEP 3D wallpaper debuts at ICFF

Four years ago we were invited by Sarah Strauss, Architect and Professor at Pratt Institute School of Art & Design in Brooklyn, NY, to critique her student’s wallpaper projects, along with our artist friend, Jessica Jane Russell.  Strauss had challenged her students to think about wallpaper in an entirely new way, as they created a repeat pattern that was also an interactive exploration in 3D. We were immediately taken by Strauss’ concept and the incredible possibilities of the 3D medium. As we returned twice per year, since 2011, to critique and mentor the students – encouraging them to push the design limits of pattern repetition and dimension – we became increasingly excited...

Rough Trade NYC - a record store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We had the privilege of contributing a custom wallpaper to the Rough Trade store that opened in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in late 2014.

The huge music emporium in Brooklyn creates a complete experience with live shows, food service and an interactive hang out area, the #guardiangreenroom featuring a custom wallpaper printed in our studio. Designed by Mohawk, a London-based branding firm, the unique space hosts interviews with the latest artists and allows...
