Troubled by dull, blank surfaces? Blah! Don’t be ordinary, be revolutionary. Grab that sad looking desk, table, cabinet (or our favorite the ever plain bookcase) and spruce it up with a new Surface Skin.
SURFACE SKINS FAQ:
1. What are these Surface Skins you speak of?
Surface Skins is a brand new line of super durable, self-adhesive art that allows you to personalize just about any large surface in your home or office quickly and easily. Use them to cover desks, tables, cabinets, bookshelves or whatever. Surface Skins were developed to bring some graphic goodness to boring furnishings everywhere.
Surface Skins were developed with a new film that allows the design to be “floated” over the selected surface during installation. The skin’s lamination provides a durable, protection to surfaces and makes them easy to apply and remove. Similar to the concept of personalizing your cellphone or laptop, Surface Skins let you to bring art off the walls and onto other objects in your home.
2. What are the Surface Skins designs?
We’re collaborating with several Blik artists to bring you a new design created for the Surface Skins line. First off, we’re teaming up with our Venice-based neighbors WRAPPED to launch 12 Surface Skins based on WRAPPED’s artfully-crafted gift wrap. Their wrap uses high-res photography of animal hides, insects and modern art with such vibrancy and clarity that the surface skin looks real to the touch. Surface Skins by WRAPPED come in four different rectangular shapes and are designed to be trimmed down to any surface or table size. The designs are: Homage, Clement, Legal, Abbot Kinney, Burst, Gouache, Broadway, Ride, Mildred, Oversee, Stratus and Still. The graphics will fit the following size rectangular shapes:
48″ x 24″ – $42
60″ x 30″ – $64
72″ x 36″ – $90
80″ x 30″ – $87
3. What took you so long to bring Surface Skins to me?
Until recently, there really wasn’t a proper film that could cover a surface with ease and not damage it. We’ll credit Blik co-founder Scott Flora (we fancy him a revolutionary) as having the idea a few years ago and finally finding the new material to make it a possibility.
