Mirabilia Wallpaper

Photo by Lisa Klappe

We live in a highly structured world; our lives are arranged down to minute details. To help stimulate our imaginations, Nienke Bongers experimented with images, shapes, colours and textures as a way to escape reality. What better way to do that than through the wallpaper that surrounds us every day? Her tactile designs are an open invitation to arrange and re-arrange the patterns. This has a meditative quality, while also allowing us to constantly create new possibilities.
