Whether off or on, ordinary light fixtures always stand out in a room – sure, some can be hidden behind recesses in the wall or ceiling, but you can still spot the probable light source in any space … well, almost.
The sisters behind MeyStyle have developed a clever way to deploy lights right into your wallpaper, creating diffuse effects and subtle light sources that disappear when turned off or can be dimmed to create an ambient glow.
The LEDs are completely integrated into the wallpaper to create a flat surface, so it can be hung like any other wall material without interfering with things like wall sockets.
Their backgrounds in theater and interactive design led them to try and use lighting in new and creative ways, integrating it into papers, surfaces and fabrics, and bolstered by the low-energy and highly-durable nature of LEDs.
“Meystyle is a London-based design company specializing in LED wallpaper, an exclusive technology pioneered in 2004. Meystyle’s mission is to rescue walls from the background, integrating bold patterns with LEDs and crystals to create a deep visual experience that transforms walls and wallpaper into works of art.”
“At Meystyle each roll of LED wallpaper is individually handmade, which enables us to make patterns that are tailored to their environments. The client has the possibility to customize virtually any aspect of the final design: from its scale to the color scheme, from the number of incorporated LEDs to the way the pattern is laid out to complement other fixtures in the room.”
“We pride ourselves in fostering what we call ‘modern day artisan techniques.’ At Meystyle technology fuses with the tradition of hand-made crafts. We fit each crystal and LED by hand, using exclusive techniques to ensure the best results. We only use the very best materials available on the market. Every single roll is individually tested and packaged by our team to make sure it complies with our high quality standards.”
