Stuck on you

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

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. Developed by Japanese company Nitto, which since 1918 has been making insulation materials and adhesive tapes for medical, electrical and automotive uses, it’s a tape that sticks to all kinds of surfaces: furniture, walls and floors. 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
