ixxi: Make Your Own Wallpaper, Art + Room Dividers

May 16, 2011

This amazing press kit just arrived in my mailbox and I can’t stop thinking of the things that one could do with a product like ixxi! This hasn’t been blogged anywhere yet so I’m so proud to give everyone a first peek at this amazing new product. I have to thank my friend Yvonne for sending it to me, she has been working on this ixxi project for awhile now and it’s finally been released and I love it. Here is glimpse to whet your appetite. I. LOVE. THIS.

ixxi: Make Your Own Wallpaper, Art + Room Dividers

Dutch company, ixxi, is so innovative and I love the things that you can do with their x’s to connect their cards that you can either upload and design yourself OR find images in their online image bank to create your own art, wallpaper and room dividers. Here are a ton of gorgeous visuals that will no doubt get your wheels turning – I adore this idea and can’t wait to try it out with some of my own photographs.

What is ixxi? “ixxi is a modular connecting system. With x’s and i’s you can make your own photo enlargement or photo collage in any format possible.”

How do I ixxi? “Create your personal ixxi using the easy online module, or select an image from the ixxi imagebank (art and photography). Upload your photos and choose how large your photo enlargement or photocollage should be.”

Does ixxi offer cutout patterns or something transparent, for instance? Yes! “ixxi has designed a collection of (interior) products with the use of alternative materials, modular patterns and graphic imagination.”

Does ixxi also work with companies on projects? Yes, yes, yes! See examples here.

…And — THEY SHIP WORLDWIDE — so no one can get upset at them! Or me! :)

    What an interesting idea. I like this better than the vinyl wall art. It’s more of a modular thing and adds an interesting look to a print!

    Greetings from Germany and thanks again;-)))

  • Reply Cecilie May 17, 2011 at 7:47 am

    This is amazing! For those of us in Germany with Raufaser on the walls it just might be a way to get interesting patterns on the walls still ;o) Love, love, love it and love too that is isn’t insanely expensive. So cool!

    • Reply decor8 May 17, 2011 at 11:19 am

      @Cecilie – YES that was what I was thinking. And you know, it never changes for me, I absolutely cannot stand raufaser. Germany needs to seriously ban it and enter the dawn of a new era that the rest of world already has embraced for a million years and that is called – flat, even walls. :) LOL

  • Reply Hannah May 17, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    Thank you! I’m a young artist and lately I’ve been working on several projects but hadn’t settled on a way to display the pieces. In Ixxi’s “inspiration” portfolio there’s a great shot of a gallery piece displayed with the ixxi system and I totally had an “aha” moment. This product fits right into the aesthetic of my current project-so thank you (and ixxi) for the inspiration!

    The Rasterbator has been around for a while and it’s free. Though you have to print and trim the sheets yourself. Still, a pretty good deal.
