Carnovsky’s RGB wallpaper: new work

Our post on Italian studio Carnovsky’s wallpapers that react to different coloured lights has been our most-read story all year. Now, new versions of the wallpapers feature in an exhibition in Berlin, alongside more work exploring the same theme

Our post on Italian studio Carnovsky’s wallpapers that react to different coloured lights has been our most-read story all year. Now, new versions of the wallpapers feature in an exhibition in Berlin, alongside more work exploring the same theme

As we explained in our original post, the designs were created for the Milan shop of Janelli & Volpi, a noted Italian wallpaper brand. Each features overlapping illustrations, different elements of which are revealed depending on whether a blue, green or red light is shone upon them.

The designs are now on show in an exhibition at the Johanssen Gallery in Berlin. There are three overlapping patterns, different elements of which are revealed according to the colour of the light shone upon them.

 

The show also features a series of prints based on playing cards. “In
each there are printed three different playing cards: The overlapping
of colours mixes up the forms so that it is difficult to recognize
which figure is represented, an enigma that can be solved just through the
use of one of the coloured filters,” explains Carnovsky‘s Francesco Rugi.

The show is on until February 10. Details here
