L'Afrique Archives Wallpaper by Studio Job

by NLXL

£175.00

Product
The L'Afrique Wallpaper was designed by Studio Job in collaboration with NLXL. L'Afrique emerged from the collaboration with Land Rover in 2012 to 2013. Studio Job was asked to design and produce a unique, sculptural Land Rover Defender on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the iconic vehicle, which has strong roots in Africa. The designers turned to Vlisco, a Netherlands-based specialist manufacturer of African wax print fabrics, to create a specially designed fabric which was then used to upholster the seats of the car.

Collection
The Archives collection of wallpaper from NLXL is a selection of seven designs from Studio Job's extensive library of icons and images, applying their trademark archetypical drawings and symbols to create unique patterns. This collection is a winner of the Editor’s award at ICFF New York in 2014.

Designer
Studio Job was founded in 1998 by Job Smeets a graduate of the Design Academy Eindhoven. They have been hugely influential in elevating design arts in contemporary culture with their highly sought-after limited edition creations. These are often inspired by highly personal experiences and are characterised by extravagant details executed using both traditional and modern techniques.

Brand
NLXL LAB is an innovative wallpaper company founded in the Netherlands in 2010 by Rick and Esther Vintage. They are best known for the Scrapwood Wallpaper collection, brainchild of designer Piet Hein Eek. The pattern has no repeat, which means all the images on the roll are different; a unique feature which has since become the defining hallmark of NLXL wallpaper. The company has since then launched hugely successful collections with Piet Hein Eek, Studio Job, Paola Navone and other leading designers, with a focus on clever, unexpected designs.
