Eco Wallpapers


Front Design and Eco Wallpaper collaborated to bring a collection of three dimensional looking wallpapers. Using a plain white background, each design features pencil sketches tricking the eye and giving the illusion of depth, simply by using light and shadow.


The collection for Eco Wallpaper consists of nine wallpapers. They wanted paper to give a three-dimensional texture to walls. For the Weave pattern above they cut ribbons of wallpaper, wove them together, and made pencil drawings where all the shadows/shades and gradients were showing. This technique was also used for the other designs.

The designers aim was to create a light wallpaper pattern that wouldn’t darken a room. Using this concept, rooms can be kept bright, but with the added three-dimensional effect.
