The big reveal is here: our newly designed entryway featuring wallpaper by Kirath Ghundoo is complete.
As we discussed in our last blog post, every season the Forster Inc entryway will receive a curated design featuring the work of the suppliers we most admire. For our autumn installation titled Liminality, we collaborated with Kirath Ghundoo Surface Pattern Design Studio and featured a selection of her vibrant wallpaper prints in our design.
We love the overall entryway design and look forward to walking through it for the next three months.
Here are the wallpapers that we used in the design:
About the installation: what is Liminality?
The liminal space, or threshold, is a common symbol throughout mythology where one enters an in-between world, time or state of being, mirroring an undiscovered knowledge of self. In our design, colourful and mismatched wallpaper is made calm and orderly through a repetitive row of panels. Panels against a bright white wall are juxtaposed against those resting on a rich black wall. The entryway itself becomes a liminal state, where each person apprehends the visit in a uniquely personal way.
