Arts blog ‘Switched on Art’ featured the Omega wallpaper – created by Absolute Zero Degrees to commemorate the exhibition ‘Beyond Bloomsbury’ at the Courtauld Gallery.
“Absolute Zero Degrees and Courtauld Gallery introduce the Omega wallpaper
Something that’s certain to appeal to anyone with an interest in early 20th century British design – Omega wallpaper, produced by Absolute Zero Degrees in conjunction with the Courtauld Gallery.
It’s been inspired by the work of the Omega Workshops and produced to coincide with a new exhibition at the Courtauld, Beyond Bloomsbury: Designs of the Omega Workshops 1913-19, which runs from 18th June to 20th September 2009. For the uninitiated, the Omega Workshops were a forward-thinking design collective, producing art, design and textiles for the more affluent end of London society.
The wallpaper above has been inspired by surviving works, printed with waterbased inks in the UK on paper from sustained and certified forests. And although it looks complex, it’s apparently very easy to match up. A 52cm x 10m roll retails for £49.95, but only from the The Courtauld Gallery shop.”
