Visit Stefan Hengst at Boutique Design New York, Stand #1952 where he will be showing his Trompe-L’Oeil collection SIGLO.
With Siglo, designer and artist Stefan Hengst, takes his surface design to a new level. The introduction of this modular panel system is in harmony with Stefan’s line of wallcoverings, each of which is created around a theme. Siglo is based on vintage photos of Spain and aligns with his debut wallpaper collection, Andaluz, which was inspired by Moorish architecture.
By recontextualizing the photographs with a subtle layer of handicraft (the application of mica fragments), the panels in the Siglo collection highlight Stefan’s comprehensive approach to image creation. The process of maturation and transition is expressed in the impressions of trees and architectural elements that comprise the collection. These trick the eye in showing us there is neither beginning nor end, only an unfolding awareness of the cycles of nature. The shadow of these photographs lives in a new light as we include them in modern, urban living and gathering spaces.
Stefan plans to edition a distinct collection each year, all playing upon the conceit of Trompe-L’oeil, and all with a subdued patina and sense of timelessness. As an alternative to wallpaper or a piece of wall art, these modular panels are easy to install and designed to become the anchor of a space.
Each Trompe L’oeil series will be offered in standard 8’W x 7.5’H panels incorporating a digital design printed on fabric, or customized panels adding a layer of unique customization via subtle handicraft, and extended dimensions as requested. The modular system can accommodate residential and commercial environments making them ideal for any room in the home as well as in building lobbies, hotel rooms, restaurants and bars. The easy-to-install, commercial grade aluminum frames work in combination with soundproof panels and can be used with new designs to create a fresh environment quickly and seamlessly without the need for professional installation.
