If you create something aesthetically beautiful in today’s world – whatever the environment – it’s bound to end up on social media. Our desire to photograph eye-pleasing things has even led to the phrase ‘Instagram friendly’ – used to describe items or settings that are worthy of sharing with thousands or millions of people.
Selling the dream
Even the mundane can attract attention when approached with a design eye and that applies to wall art too. At our recent office refurbishment for Travel Bag – a High Street travel agency, we used a combination of giant lightboxes and Foamex boards with backlighting to create Instagrammable wall ideas. This stunning display of oversized holiday destination images – highly aspirational photography that stops people in their tracks - makes them want to be transported somewhere tropical.
Wall art as a brand hallmark
Our repeat office refurbishment work for estate agent Coopers has seen us create ‘hallmark’ corporate office wall design ideas for its London branches. Each is based on a slow-exposure dusk streetscape photograph, which is displayed in a number of different ways. At our most recent Coopers project, a new office in Pinner, the photograph was divided into three sections and digitally printed to three LED light panels – mounted with a slim gap in between each section to create a halo light effect.
In past offices, multiple photographs were used to decorate the walls – sometimes split over five panels – and at other locations, a photograph was blown up, printed to self-adhesive vinyl and applied to a whole wall – edge-to-edge.
Shine a light
The common theme that really makes an impact with wall art is the illumination, ensuring the artworks hard to attract attention by day and night. MPL Interiors can design and install office interior design ideas with a variety of different lighting techniques so the focus is always on your wall art.
