Walls and ceil­ings

Metal­lic Looks 1 Con­nect the Dots

Ark­tura’s Va­por Graphic Perf is a dig­i­tally printed sys­tem that cre­ates seam­less tran­si­tions be­tween walls and ceil­ings. The alu­minum pan­els can be com­bined with acous­tic back­ing and in­te­grated light­ing. ark­tura.com

2 Lam­i­nate Metal

A durable so­lu­tion for ver­ti­cal and hor­i­zon­tal sur­faces, Formica’s De­cometal fuses metal foils onto high­pres­sure lam­i­nate. The sheets are sold in 33 de­signs, in­clud­ing the ox­i­dized bronze shown. formica.com

3 Time to Shine

Suited to fea­ture walls and bar fronts, the Ci­net­ica col­lec­tion of pewter wall­cov­er­ings from Stu­dio Lido and Mari­noni Pel­tro en­com­passes four tile shapes, in­clud­ing Pail­lettes (shown), fea­tur­ing an­gled bumps that catch light like se­quins. ci­net­ica.pel­tro.com

Soft So­lu­tions 1 Sculpt­ing Sound

Named this year’s best in acous­tic pan­els at Neo­con, Unika Vaev’s Ecous­tic Sculpt PET ceil­ing tiles are avail­able in nine sculp­tural de­signs. From tri­an­gu­lar blades to desert dunes, the di­verse styles can be ar­ranged in lin­ear, checker­board and mir­rored pat­terns. unikavaev.com

2 Grey Tones

Crease Ceil­ing Sys­tem, from Turf De­sign and MNML, con­nects to a T-grid us­ing rare-earth mag­nets, en­abling the tiles to com­pletely con­ceal ex­ist­ing dropped ceil­ings. Fab­ri­cated from re­cy­cled wa­ter bot­tles, the tes­sel­lated felt pan­els come in two grey-tone fin­ishes. turf.de­sign

3 Deep Colour

A col­lab­o­ra­tion with New Mex­ico stu­dio Sub­ma­te­rial, Ribsy is the lat­est felt-and-cork cre­ation from Filzfelt. Sold in 50 colours, the sound-ab­sorbent wall pan­els use al­ter­nat­ing shades of wool to en­hance a deeply ribbed ap­pear­ance. filzfelt.com

Re­think­ing Pa­per 1 Out of the Box

Rewall uses a wa­ter­less process to re­cy­cle poly­coated pa­per waste – i.e., milk car­tons – into durable wall­board. Re­sis­tant to mois­ture and mould, the pan­els boast twice the strength of ce­ment boards. Demon­strated dur­ing last May’s Ny­cxde­sign in the Zero Waste Bistro (shown), the prod­uct also pro­vides acous­tic in­su­la­tion. re­wall­so­lu­tions.com

2 In­door/out­door

The dig­i­tally printed graph­ics of In­sta­bile­lab’s wall­pa­pers can be car­ried onto ex­te­rior walls with the brand’s Fi­bra­tex fi­bre­glass fab­ric. A resin coat­ing weath­er­proofs de­signs like Fo­cused Point (shown) and also makes them suit­able for in­stal­la­tion in wet en­vi­ron­ments such as bath­rooms. in­sta­bile­lab.it

3 Wall Ar­mour

Wolf-gor­don has added two wo­ven de­signs to its high-im­pact wall pro­tec­tion line, Ram­part. The cot­ton­backed vinyl sheets suit high-traf­fic ar­eas such as health­care and hos­pi­tal­ity projects and are re­sis­tant to sur­face abra­sion and in­den­ta­tion. wolf­gor­don.com

Hard Sur­faces 1 Warm Walls

U.K. man­u­fac­turer Clay­works has in­tro­duced a wall and ceil­ing sys­tem that adds gen­tle ra­di­ant heat to clay pan­els. The mod­ules con­nect to a boiler tank or man­i­fold, sim­i­larly to the way in-floor heat­ing would, but they have the added ben­e­fit of ab­sorb­ing odours and re­duc­ing al­ler­gens. clay-works.com

2 Flex­i­ble Stone

Ver­salite Stone nat­u­ral stone ve­neer pan­els make it easy to ap­ply the look of slate, sand­stone or quartzite to in­te­rior walls. Avail­able with rigid, fab­ric or translu­cent back­ings, the pan­els can fol­low the curve of any sur­face and are pro­duced in 24 dif­fer­ent colour and tex­ture op­tions. ver­salite­stone.com

3 Min­i­mal Ma­sonry

Con­crete LCDA has ex­panded its Pan­be­ton foam­backed con­crete panel col­lec­tion with new de­signs by Pa­trick Norguet, in­clud­ing the build­ing-block-in­spired Har­mony (shown). Mea­sur­ing up to 350 by 120 cen­time­tres in sur­face area and 15 to 25 mil­lime­tres thick, the slabs are eas­ily cut to size. con­crete-bre­ton.com
