Uncover Historic References in Arte’s Latest Wallcoverings

The ancient city of Babylon inspired Arte’s latest line of textile wallcoverings. It draws on cuneiform script, the pictographic writing that Mesopotamians carved into clay tablets. Likewise, Babylon’s four patterns were initially carved into clay, creating three-dimensional molds that Arte’s team converted into metal stamps. Using heat stamping, they transfer the designs onto a textile surface with a thin layer of foam and nonwoven backing. The resulting acoustical wall tiles, each in four colorways, resemble plasterwork: Terracotta recalls decorative earthenware, Medjoul depicts date palms, and Adobe mixes squares and triangles in an irregular composition. arte-international.com
