Ryuji Nakamura does great things with steel, like the ‘blossom’ paper they recently featured.

Ryuji Nakamura’s ‘blossom’ design is cut so that steel naturally curls, making a 3D effect on the wall when all the metal flowers bend into position. The ‘blossom’ design is a great example of harder femininity - using steel for style!

Implications - In today's rental culture, wallpaper has made a resurgence as a temporary way to customize a space's interior. Modern wallpaper diverges from previous iterations by incorporating intricate 3-D elements, which add an interactive, tactile quality to otherwise plain wall coverings. Innovative materials such as steel and other metals are also incorporated into contemporary wallpaper designs.
