Famed Dutch Designer Piet Hein Eek, and his Scrapwood Wallpaper
at the WALLPAPER COLLECTIVE
The design world has gone mad for Piet Hein Eek, and so have we. He is best known for his
intricately designed scrap wood furniture – particularly popular now as we scramble to track down ever
more sustainable ways to scratch our design itch. However Piet Hein Eek has been devoted to using
reclaimed materials for most of his career and long before it was fashionable
He first developed an interest in old materials after restoring a cupboard for his sister. He has
built his business around vintage materials, saving these discarded pieces of wood and working outside
of the circuit of mass production. His work is now sold in numerous galleries worldwide, and he has
exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Milan Furniture Fair, Italy; and Cïbone, Tokyo.
Now for the first time, Piet Hein Eek’s work is realized in wallpaper and available to a wider audience at
the Wallpaper Collective.
There is no pattern in Scrapwood Wallpaper, and it has over 10 square feet of unique planks. It
is printed on heavy-duty wallpaper with paper top-layer and membrane backing colorfast and washable
with a soft cloth. Furthermore, every step of the sourcing, printing and packaging process employs the
smallest possible environmental impact.
The Wallpaper Collective is the first US-based company to gather the best designer wallpapers
from around the world under one-roof and make them available to the retail and Trade customer via an
ecommerce website. Customers can browse thousands of images of gorgeous wallpapers, save their
favorites in a wish list; get advice from professionals, order samples and return to buy the wallpaper at the
very best prices available. Through an active blog and twitter site the Wallpaper Collective also provides
valuable information on wallpaper installation, technical information, up and coming designers and photo
logs of installed wallpapers.
