Non-woven wallpaper is made of cellulose and polyester fibres. The wallpaper is easy to use as the wallpaper strips are hung directly on a pasted wall, in contrast from many older types of wallpaper.
Josef Frank had a theory when it came to wallpaper. He felt that colours as well as patterns could take away the feeling of confinement and that wallpaper therefore could be used advantageously in small spaces, for example in a smaller hall or in a child’s room. Today however, Josef Frank’s printed wallpaper is used just as often in the bedroom, kitchen or living room.
One of Josef Frank’s many quotes when it comes to interiors and interior design reflects his thoughts on wallpaper:
“Bright colours and strong patterns can take away the feeling of confinement. Even a pokey little cubicle can be exciting with striking wallpaper.”
All Svenskt Tenn wallpaper, solids as well as patterned, are printed with distemper paint – a special technique that gives the wallpaper patterns a unique structure and vibrant feeling. Through the distemper technique, the solid craftsmanship is ever present in the final result, where a slight ridge forms in the material. This structure can be felt by drawing your hand over the finished wallpaper.
The distemper printing technique dates back to the early 1800s and is today a way for Svenskt Tenn to come as close as possible to Josef Frank’s original thoughts and print ideas. The technique makes every single roll of wallpaper unique. The wallpaper’s pattern and details may differ slightly and factors such as weather, humidity and other elements in the production process are some of the things that can affect the wallpaper’s end result.
