This psychedelic wallpaper may seem dizzying, but there is a method to the madness. Designer Carnovsky created these overlapping patterns and shapes to work as one or when viewed with a red, green, or blue filter or light to respond to that specific light wave and reveal just one of the layers of the design. The wallpaper was recently shown at the Milan Design Week at the Jannelli & Volpi store.

We wanted to represent the antique theme of the metamorphosis intended as an unceasing transformation of shapes from a “primigenial chaos”. For this purpose we have created a sort of catalogue of natural motifs starting with the engravings from natural history’s great European texts, between the XVI and the XVII Century, from Aldrovandi to Ruysch, from Linneus to Bonnaterre.


It is possible to design a similar concept and print your own wallpaper. It would be perfect for a nightclub setting.
