Known for their distinct surface-printed aesthetic, Sandberg has introduced their first digital wallpaper collection, Arkiv. Carefully thought out and divided into four sections, the curation of patterns consists of six from Sandberg’s own archives and nine handpicked from archives all over Sweden. Each bares a motif that truly stands on its own, so why not tell a story on your walls with a piece of Swedish history?
COLLECTION | Architecture
In the past, architects were recognized as skilled artists who produce meticulous drawings of houses, trees and chairs. Sandberg has chosen sketches right out of the sketchbooks of Swedish architects Gunnar Asplund, Carl-Wilhelm Carlberg and Isak Gustaf Clason to pay tribute to their work.
COLLECTION | Maps
Throughout time, maps have been a way to relate to reality, create order and find one’s place in the world. An ongoing fascination with old maps moves us because of their attention to details of houses, fences and bridges. Sandberg’s discovery of these hand-painted maps enables us to feel that history.
COLLECTION | Japanese Woodblock Print
An age-old printing technique from the 17th century in Japan where each colour is printed with a cherry wood block. Undoubtedly a great contribution to the world of art, here Sandberg shows us how Sweden has embraced the beautiful art form. Both woodblock prints have been rendered from the elegant works of Utagawa Hiroshige and Chobonsai Eishi.
COLLECTION | Sandberg Archives
Selected from Sandberg’s very own archives are some of their most magnificent fabric patterns that never got their chance to be produced as wall covering due to lack of technology available. However, now with the digital age, the dream has been made possible.
