We recently launched a collection of wall coverings that pays homage to the great architects of contemporary history. The collection is called Random Archist.
This is why we have decided to complete our tour, using our imagination to cover the most iconic and striking buildings of Europe, in Barcelona. Specifically, at the house of Xavier Corberó in Esplugues de Llobregat.
Xavier Corberó built his wonderful labyrinth house in Esplugues in 1968. It is a construction with large empty rooms which display his sculptural works over six descending floors. It covers an area of 15,000 m2, divided into 25 spaces, all with an abundance of light.
Our Random Archist wallpaper, Rostros, was actually inspired by the artist’s sculptural work, and this is how we came up with the idea to cover this wonderful labyrinthine mass of concrete with the anonymous faces which observe everything suspiciously as if the artist had carved them out of stone with his own hands.
Xavier Corberó stated that he did not like to model, he liked to sculpt. He said that when standing in front of stone “one must be very humble… sculpture improves the more the sculptor disappears, unlike painting.”
We hope you enjoy this architectural and sculptural fusion we are sharing with you, which depicts the essence of Xavier Corberó.
