Japan is the new (and vibrant) collection of Andrew Martin's single color papers

Bright and colorful coverings are in fashion, as we can see in the most modern boutique hotels or in private clubs. Places where bright and colorful paint envelops the walls as if they were galleries.

A good example is the Andrew Martin's new Japan collection. A collection of monochrome papers with an incredible lacquer texture that has an interesting optical effect.

The type of stamping used in these monochrome papers makes the visual effect change depending on the distance at which you look. In this way, if we are close, we can see a textured and shaded wall. However, if we look at the wall from afar, we will see the wall brighter and with a beautiful lacquered effect.

The luminescence caused by the incidence of light on paper allows dark tones to resurface more vibrant and let us see neutral ones much more evocative.

The name of this collection, Japan, is given by the japanning, a 17th century art coined by European artisans who imitated the Asian art of lacquered furniture, usually black decorative cabinets.

Perfect colors (24 in total) to create unique spaces by mixing 2 tones together or creating contrasting lines in the same space to create a colorful effect that you can find in Spain in Pepe Penñalver.

And it is in those in which I have taken more photographs and that I comment today.

Casa Decor Madrid 2009. The Ikea space

This is the first time that Ikea participates in Casa Decor, although last December it already made its first foray into a Madrid event with its presence in Habitalia.
