Dedar´s latest wallpaper collection, called Lacca, is inspired by the 17th century Chinese Coromandel screens. These famous folding screens coated in black lacquer with large colored incised designs, sometimes with mother of pearl inlays, were traditionally used to decorate rooms.
One of the collection prints is Silkbird that is a contemporary interpretation of an archive drawing on a solid colour background with cool tones in the foreground. Like in traditional Coromandel screens the gold is highlighted by the dark background recalling the time-honoured gold leaf technique.
The colour options are influenced by shades
typical of oriental lacquers, porcelain and precious metals.
