DEDAR ANNOUNCES A NEW WAY TO LOOK AT THE WALL
In 2017, the Italian interior textile house, Dedar, celebrates its fortieth anniversary with a new collaboration between the designer Martino Gamper and the artist Brigitte Niedermair.
Screenshot is a conceptual photography project synthesising 500 years of the colour blue in figurative art. This concept is transposed onto Dedar’s sophisticated fabrics, which are then further transformed into a design serial piece of art.
The result is a highly unexpected and innovative project, which takes the idea of a wall decoration, combining the realms of three-dimensional design and art history, and produces a series of beautifully printed panels framed in teak and brass. The panels can be customised for each owner into any number of configurations, thus offering endless opportunities and possibilities.
Dedar has worked with a range of creative minds in the past but this collaboration is the first time that it has united an artist and a designer in this way.
