Crown Paint and the Royal College of Art embarked on a new, exciting and unique collaboration. The second year students were asked to design the 'Crown Jewels'-modern, stylish and inspired wall stencils for the home.
'Image Furniture' by Kyu Seon Lee was the winning stencil design.
The stencil shows a chandelier created from household objects. Keys, corkscrews and glasses can be hung over the silhouette, acting as a fun frame for everyday objects.
"I designed a stencil which takes furnishing objects as flat images. The reason I chose to do this is because some houses do not have enough space or height to accommodate something as opulent as a chandelier, but with this stencil it is easy to integrate the object into your home" says Kyu. "In addition, I wanted to give a little practical function and humour to my design by encouraging real objects to be incorporated into the stencil."
'Image Furniture' Kyu's winning stencil can be ordered from The Stencil Library. At five feet high (153 centimetres),this is no timid stencil design. I think it is fabulous. I would like to play with the stencil and see how it looks when the real objects are hung over the stencilled shadows. Can I resist the temptation to start adding my own embellishments? I doubt it, but I think that is the spirit of the design.
What do you think? Love it or loathe it?
