Interiors start-up, Feathr, has collaborated with renowned Finnish designer, Johanna Gullichsen, to make her classic fabric designs available as wallpaper for the first time. Two Johanna Gullichsen designs - Nereus and Raita - are the first to be reimagined by Feathr as wallpapers, and offer a stunning range of classic and contemporary colours.
“Nereus” has a clear and rhythmical pattern constructed of squares and blocks, while “Raita” celebrates the subtle, organic stripe that forms the backdrop to “Nereus”. The two designs elevate their structured geometric form by retaining organic, uneven lines that reflect Gullichsen’s original handweaving on the loom and are cleverly designed to be used both independently and side by side, with perfectly complementary design features and colour schemes. Both come in a matching range of colours, including classic Pearl, Alabaster, and Light Blue, along with rich Ochre and Dark Blue, and are offered on Feathr’s luxurious non-woven wallcovering, which is suitable for both residential and commercial use, along with vinyl wallcovering materials designed exclusively for commercial use.
Johanna Gullichsen tells, "Handweaving with the loom is my inspiration for exploring techniques and patterns. That's how most of my designs are born. Craft is a living design tool for me, always included in the narrative of my textiles, so I’m delighted to see how flawlessly my designs have transposed from textiles to wallcoverings.”
