Wunderkammer: A New (and Exotic) Wallcovering Line from Zak + Fox

October 5, 2018

Currently coveting: A new line of wallcoverings from our friends at Zak+ Fox wallcoverings, whose work is “informed by history and myth, folklore and fable—a catalyst that informs all that we do,” as founder Zak Profera says. Contact Zak + Fox directly for pricing or visit their atmospheric new showroom at 346 Park Avenue South, Suite 400, New York.

Here’s a look (and see the full line here):

zak fox ntama wallpaper 2
Above: The Ntama pattern; according to Zak, “Ntama’s floating, narrow lines are loosely inspired by Ashanti Liar’s Cloths. These West African patterns are woven with a floating warp technique, in which warp stripes step across the cloth at regular intervals, producing a fretwork of fine, rhythmic strokes.”
zak and fox les baobabs wallpaper 2
Above: The Les Baobabs Amoureux pattern is inspired by Madagascar lore. “Entwined together, these two giant baobab trees inspired a local legend, in which a young boy and girl from separate villages fell in love.Against an opalescent field of mica wallpaper, branches interlace, sprouting leaves and flowers that seem to glow against the surface sheen.”
zak and fox sauvage wallpaper
Above: Sauvage is “an homage to the wilderness inspired by the patron saint of painters, Henri Matisse, Sauvage’s unencumbered brushstrokes balance wild freedom with refined form.”
zak and fox uroko wallpaper
Above: “The word for Uroko, one of our most recognizable patterns, loosely translates from Japanese as ‘scale,’ like that of a fish or snake. The design draws inspiration from Kiyohime, a shape-shifting folk character of Japanese Noh dramas.”

Above: Curiosities is “Conceived as a surreal library, Curiosities is our trompe l’oeil take on a bookcase. An eclectic assortment of books, botanicals and curious objects sprawl across a series of shelves and niches.”
