Amazing wallpapers by Marian Bantjes for Maharam

Marian Bantjes is a world-reknowned designer, typographer, writer and illustrator from Canada.  She’s especially famous for her super detailed illustrations and intricate hand worked patterns… and she must be doing something right because some of the coolest companies and publications across the globe are lining up to collaborate with her.! Just this year she’s made a Laser Sailboat for *Wallpaper Magazine, customised chairs and a table by Dutch design house Droog, and made some seriously INCREDIBLE wallpapers with boutique interiors brand Maharam.  Jeepers.  Big year!

I also REALLY love Marian’s more personal  Valentine’s day card project from earlier his year – laser-cut from recycled Christmas cards!? Simple genius!
