Stuck on you

Words:

HARU stuck-on design is pushing the notion of ‘New Ornamentalism’ a bit further down the road and has netted itself a 2018 Red Dot Design award in the process.

This allows architects to quickly transform the look of a space on a grand scale – and it can be removed without a trace. Available in a host of colours, patterns and widths, it offers designers the freedom to not only ‘pop up’ but ‘peel off’ too
