Warping Wallpaper

By Christa Terry

German company Surrealien creates custom wallpaper that warps around the “influencing elements” on your walls. Anything from picture frames to outlet covers affect the pattern created using computers and a grid system that generates exact warping functions.


The end result is a playful wallcovering that celebrates continuity in a new way.

Warping Wallpaper

Whereas the patterns in traditional wallpapers are broken by anything interrupting the natural flatness of the wall itself, Warping wallpaper functions as a “sensitive gobetween,” according to the company’s web site. Of course, while it is rather clever, installing it in your home does mean that you’re stuck with your current orientation of wall art, windows, and electrical outlets until you’re ready to change up your wallpaper.

    WOW! Really different but how in the heck do you figure your pattern matches and repeats? I bet it’s a b**ch.

  2. Ivory Pearl Interiors Says:

    Quirky and funky wallpapers, but if you look at it for too long it gives you a bit of a headache. Great patterns!

  3. Ruggles Says:

    My opinion: Fun for a while, then tiresome.

    Oh my god! I both love and brain! It hurts my eyes and delights my brain!

  5. carrot Says:

    Uh, both love and HATE IT. Apparently it hurts my eyes AND my language skills.
