Old Bollywood movie posters recycled as wallpaper

Cinema Posters, a new wallpaper design from Weitzner, is editing in the extreme: Bollywood movie posters from India have been sliced up and stitched back together as art-house wallpaper. Seen from afar, Cinema Posters look like a random configuration of saturated colors, intensely graphic and chaotic. Up close, bits of imagery — an eyelash here, credit text there — come into focus. Nylon thread that holds the poster strips to a paper backing creates an orderly pattern of transparent stitches across the surface.

Some caveats: Cinema Posters is not recommended for areas with moisture (such as bathrooms) or direct sunlight. The design is sold through the trade, meaning an interior designer will need to price the material for you through the Kneedler-Fauchere showroom in the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, (310) 855-1313. Weitzner: (888) 609-5551. For a closer look at Cinema Posters, keep reading ...


From a ar, Cinema Posters reads as abstract bits of chaotic color.
Up close, details such as facial features and the transparent nylon stitching become more evident.
