There are some design studios and interior designers that I will constantly look up for their latest projects because they are always so fabulous. One of them has got to be Ganna Studio 甘納設計 from Taiwan. Ganna Studio is helmed by designer couple Lin Shih-Jie and Chen Ting-Liang. They have a very distinctly stylish contemporary take on design, and their work has always feel original and full of surprises. In this and the next post, I’m going to share their 2 of their recent projects which I really like. This is the Chorus project, an amazing transformation of a 30-year old building into a modern, boutique hotel style home for a family of 4.
Ever since I saw the sculptural wallcovering used by Ganna Studio on their pivot panels, I was dying to find out the source of this interesting and unique wallcovering.
Searching high and low on the Internet, but to no avail.
And yesterday, I just chanced upon this wallcovering while randomly surfing the net. And what a coincidence, the wallpaper that I’ve been dreaming of is from a collection called “Chance Perfecto”! Perfect indeed.
Anyway, this 3-d wallcovering is from ÉLITIS, a French company that designs and produces contemporary wallpapers and fabrics.
So how do they make the wallcovering appears 3-d?
Well, on a non-woven backing, a jersey fabric is laid over foam, and then “thermo-formed” with a mould, to enhance the contrast between matt and shines. It also offers acoustic qualities and it is washable.
While it does come with a price tag (it is sold by meter), I do feel that it is worth the investment for the visual impact that it will achieve.
The next time you want to invest in faux brick feature wall in our Singapore HDB apartment, why not consider something more interesting like this Chance Perfecto 3-d wallcovering?
Following are 2 projects that showcase the use of the same product in interiors of different style.
Ganna Design is a relatively young design studio based in Taiwan that has been quite a hit recently.
This modern apartment designed by Ganna Studio for a family of three is another recent project that I really really like.
An integrated TV and storage unit in dark color scheme anchors the living-dining area. The doors of the storage unit were actually painted with chalkboard paint to provide a canvas for the kid to doodle on.
The folding doors of the bookshelves provide flexibility – it can be opened up to showcase the owner’s display, or close up to achieve a more streamlined look.
Can you guess that this paneling on the door is a 3D textile wall-covering?
At the dining area, the wall done a very pretty shade of greyish blue and provides a nice contrast to the dark colored TV& storage unit.
