Powerful, mysterious and seductive black is universally prized. Embraced by both kings and monks, it is in turn melancholy's confidant and glamour defined. Whispers, the new wallpaper collection by Marcel Wanders celebrates polarity and the art of observation.

Like little secrets, soft velvet whispers sparkle upon rough textured paper offering multiple yet opposing sensations to the touch and eye. The colours are dark, the details enigmatic, only upon close inspection do the narratives come to life. This is a wallpaper for intimate spaces such as a boudoir or a private bar, and within these spaces Whispers invites you to live your wildest dreams. Your secrets are safe. Black absorbs all.

Have you ever met Marcel

Are you a metal head? 

Are you fond of white

Do you believe broken porcelain brings luck?  

Do you recognise this face

Paper is wood

Believe it or not you're a light-weight

Do you agree lace is lovely? 

Sparkly like silver or shiny like gold

Does glass always pass the light?
