One strip is a collection of wallpaper strips drawn by graphic artists and designers for a French design company. Conceived to be used and installed vertically or horizontally, they are all deployed in the width of a single strip of 50cm. Midway between illustration and trompe l’oeil, some models look for a space in this very vertical format to deploy ornamental or narrative proposals, while others take the reverse track of opening new paths, looking for new uses to renew wallpaper. Smiling caterpillars, flying space creatures and the occasional body organ that comes to life are just a few of the inhabitants of the private world of Pierre Marie.
Ich&Kar propose a learning or overhaul of the multplication and Bescherelle tables, matali crasset. Frederick Grasser Hermé propose installing a sauce tree in the kitchen to accommodate your everyday dishes with simple recipes, and Ana Mir and Emili Padros tear us away from work to recall us to our physical needs of stretching and exercising.
Other proposals bring out the qualities and subtleties of the drawings of graphic artists and artists like Florence Manlik, Anamorphée and Leslie David.
