Abitare - - BOOSTER -

From 21 Ja­nua­ry to 12 Ju­ne 2016 the Mu­sée des Arts Dé­co­ra­tifs of Pa­ris will be put­ting on show 300 of the mo­st em­ble­ma­tic spe­ci­mens of wall­pa­per from its ex­traor­di­na­ry col­lec­tion of over 400,000 pie­ces, the lar­ge­st in the world. The ex­hi­bi­tion will com­pa­re the pro­duc­tion of dif­fe­rent pe­riods and ori­gins to il­lu­stra­te the va­st ran­ge of sty­les and craf­tsman­ship from the 18th cen­tu­ry up un­til the pre­sent day. En­ti­tled Fai­re le mur, it co­vers six main the­mes in whi­ch an­ti­que and con­tem­po­ra­ry are mi­xed up and re­veal unex­pec­ted con­nec­tions, sho­wing that wall­pa­per is not ju­st an ex­tre­me­ly crea­ti­ve means of de­co­ra­tion, but the re­flec­tion of a cul­tu­re and a lifestyle.
