The Noir Collection (by Rachel de Joode)

A few months ago we recieved a question to catagorize all possible patterns in architecture and in daily life. With the thorough analysis we then created an architectural intervention, be it structural, optical or technical…

Back then, I came across the wallpaper collection of Rachel de Joode. She’s a photographer, studied at the Rietveld Academy, and does mainly fashion and styling.

Her wallpaper collection consists of details of fashion photographs. Through the repitition and mirroring of the ladies and gents on the photos, the wall finally gets a surreal “neo” Art-Deco look, giving the volume it surrounds a  spatial  experience.

There’s a video-clip about the collection and a website featuring all available prints.
