Follmann presents the first three motifs of the 2019 wallpaper calendar, which is dedicated to the art of geometric shapes and patterns

Whether on walls, on home textiles or on decorative and home accessories – graphic patterns are very much on trend and create special highlights and a cosy modern living ambiance in homes. The “Wallpaper competence” network takes up this trendy geometric style in its new wallpaper calendar, which will be officially presented at Heimtextil 2019. As one of the five network members, Follmann is already allowing a first glimpse into the new calendar.

The wallpaper calendar has a different theme each year. After this year's calendar was dedicated to different peoples’ and cultures’ approaches to ornamentation, the “Wallpaper competence” network, consisting of the companies Follmann, Kämmerer, M-Design Edgar Meyer, Saueressig and SPGPrints, has picked up a real trend topic for the 2019 edition: under the theme “The Contemporary Art of Geometry”, the focus is on geometric shapes and patterns that enjoy great popularity in the field of interior design. All calendar motifs are based on triangles, squares, hexagons, diamonds, or lines that are either meandering or linear.

Follmann is presenting the first three motifs ahead of the official calendar launch:

The “Floating Triangles” motif, the first motif of the 2019 wallpaper calendar, is adorned with wavy and curved turquoise and black triangles in various sizes. The black background creates a brilliant lacquer effect, with the embossed foam providing structure.

The “Static Triangles” motif consists of oppositely arranged triangles in the colours black, silver, brown, gold and beige, which create a harmonious look. Silver mottled triangles create a nice contrast. The golden hue was achieved by toning the silver ink, a technique which gives designers a variety of design options. A special matte effect is created by the aqueous soft-touch foam used for the black areas.

On the “Hexagon Spots” motif, colourful overlapping hexagons are depicted. This geometric motif is especially impressive due to its pearlescent and lacquer finishes, which are achieved through the use of effect inks.

If you want to find out more about the calendar and the materials used, you can look forward to the upcoming Heimtextil trade fair in Frankfurt, where Follmann will continue its tradition to officially present the new wallpaper calendar at booth C38 in hall 3.1.
