Inverted Spaces, a new wallpaper design inspired by the night sky was presented at Salone del Mobile 2015 with an installation at Rossana Orlandi.

Designed by Rachel and Nick Cope of Brooklyn based Calico Wallpaper, of whom I'm a big fan, in partnership with Amsterdam based conceptual design studio BCXSY(Boaz Cohen & Sayaka Yamamoto).

To realise Inverted Spaces, BCXSY created abstracted artworks from compilations of NASA space photography, which Calico Wallpaper then digitally composed into a non­‐repeating wall mural. Installed on a series of panels inside Spazio Rossana Orlandi, Inverted Spaces is a panoramic, immersive experience that is an exploration of celestial spaces, both imagined and real.

Inverted Spaces celebrates the fascination of the infinity that has surrounded us since the dawn of mankind. A custom­‐made universe, constructed of combined high-‐definition NASA imagery, uniquely interacts with each environment and installation – just as space itself.

The partnership between Calico Wallpaper and BCXSY that evolved into Inverted Spaces began in 2013. Nick and Rachel Cope of Calico Wallpaper had long been admirers of BCXSY’s work, and were impressed with BCXSY’s success in pairing their own conceptual strengths with the skills of other artists and designers. Inverted Spaces was created during a period when Rachel and Nick visited Boaz and Sayaka in Amsterdam in the summer of 2014. 

The wallpaper designs will be available for purchase in Italy exclusively through Rossana Orlandi, and in the US and the rest of the world directly through Calico Wallpaper.
