Sidewall, All of Us, 2008

This is a Sidewall. It was designed by Geoff McFetridge. It is dated 2008 and we acquired it in 2017. Its medium is screen printed on paper. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.

“All of Us” is a group of four different wallpapers that work together to show a gathering of people that starts out as a very dense configuration then transitions to become more sparse as the panels move to the right. “All of Us” was designed to facilitate installation flexibility as three of the four panels can be repeated indefinitely to cover the desired space. The fourth pattern transitions from a higher to a lower density and can only be used between panels two and four. This paper was designed for an interior of a youth art workshop in Los Angeles. There are only a few designers creating these transition papers which fill a need in modern and contemporary architecture with the growing popularity of communal work areas, great rooms, and lofts. Transition papers are a good solution for these spaces as they create a subtle delineation between different areas without having to erect a physical barrier. “All of Us” would be the first transition paper in the collection.
