Sight Unseen OFFSITE 2017
Calico Wallpaper is pleased to introduce its latest collection, Aura, at Sight Unseen OFFSITE (May 19-22, 2017) during the citywide festival NYCxDESIGN. An exploration of the unseen energies that surround and envelop us, Aura will be presented as a site-specific interactive installation developed in collaboration with Brooklyn-based experimental design studio The Principals.
For the exhibition, Calico Wallpaper partnered with The Principals to incorporate the Aura Collection into a site-specific installation that reflects aura as a projection of energy. A semi-octagonal room lined with Aura wallpaper will feature an interactive chandelier designed by The Principals. When touched, the chandelier will project different sounds and lights depending on the impression of the person making contact. Through sight and sound, the installation makes perceptible the inherent electricity in human bodies.
