Wallpaper* Handmade X: With Love
Honored to have the hunks of burning love that comprise our new Tom of Finland Tame + XXX wallpapers featured in Wallpaper*‘s special Handmade X feature! The story spotlights the unique objects designers and makers, artists and manufacturers created to inspire desire, passion and affection for the annual exhibit held at Milan’s Salone dei Tessuti in April this year. We collaborated with Michael Reynolds, Hoffman Creative and the Tom of Finland Foundation to bring this bold and ballsy tribute to the dynamic graphite and pencil drawings of Touko Laaksonen (aka Tom of Finland) to life. And, devised a ‘Peep Show’ experience for showgoers to really draw attention to the celebratory nature of the design, which is all about cheerleading around eroticism, masculinity and sexual liberation.
