During Milano Design Week, Devon&Devon unveils an exclusive presentation at its Via San Marco 38 store of the brand’s debut Wallpaper Collection, its first portfolio of wallpapers, produced in cooperation with designers Francesca Greco, Nina Farré and Vito Nesta. Created to decorate both bathroom and living areas of the home, this elegant, comprehensive and contemporary proposal is in perfect synthesis with the philosophy of the brand.
“We felt the need to complete our offer with a collection of wallpapers that enabled us to enhance the decorative possibilities for private homes, residential projects and hotels,” explains Gianni Tanini, Devo&Devon CEO, “Therefore, we decided to work together with emerging design talent, sharing through this collaboration a completely new creative process for the brand which has resulted in a significant and extensively broad collection”.
“We are delighted,”comments Teresa Tanini Devon&Devon Marketing and Communication Manager,“to launch a project completely “Made In Italy”, from conception, to design and production”.
The Devon&Devon Wallpaper Collection adapts perfectly and seamlessly to a wide variety of different contexts, suggesting interior ambiances from the classical to the exquisitely eccentric.
The 32 themes selected range from geometrical motifs to three-dimensional and optical effects, to motifs inspired by Art Deco, together with oriental and arabesque patterns, including brightly-coloured and surreal floral and animal motifs. In addition, imagery includes goldfish, dreamlike landscapes and retro fabrics, all perfect for designing fascinating, eclectic atmospheres. Every pattern is proposed in several choices and combinations of colour, for a total of 126 different designs.
The Devon&Devon technical department will provide a service to assist each customer in creating a personalised scheme for application.
The Devon&Devon Wallpaper Collection will be presented to the press at a preview on April 3 and from April 4th to 8th to the public during Milano Design Week at the Via San Marco 38 flagship store.

In 2016, Nina Farré developed a concept for designs using the white stone of the Mediterranean, through which she came into contact with Devon&Devon.
