Hermes “On the Wall” @ Salone Milan 2017

Hermes “On the Wall” @ Salone Milan 2017

Since 2011, the year of its first collection, Hermès wallpaper has added fantasy and poetry to domestic spaces.

An extraordinary range of narrative illustrations and designs inspired by the heritage of the maison, which Hermès offered in Milan for an immersive, entertaining experience during the Salone

For the Salone, Hermès decided to cover some facades with its elegant modern wallpapers.

An urban installation, simple but very impressive, which changed the face of some iconic places in the Brera Design District.

Inside a house, the modern wallpaper can totally change a room’s appearances, but if it decorates a gate or an entire façade, it can make a part of the city special.

The Urban Walls by Hermès accompany the hectic pace of the district during Design Week 2017, with dreamlike choreography, where a horse keeper looks for a horse and a calash in a labyrinth of architectural perspectives, flights of stairs, wrought iron balustrades, abstract geometrical patterns, and colourful animals.

The designer illustrations are in harmony with the city’s architecture and give it an exclusive and glamorous touch.

Hermes interacted with the architecture of the city and its inhabitants, stimulating new points of view through an extraordinary carnet of narrative illustrations and drawings, inspired by the Maison’s heritage.

Hermès covered the facades of several symbolic sites in the Brera district with its latest Hermes wallpaper collections.

This was an intended urban installation to interact with the architecture of the city and its inhabitants, stimulating new points of view.


Stars of the performance are the wallpaper collection’s patterns: the 2107 Mille Jeux, designed by Gianpaolo Pagni, Les Carreaux and Les Cabanes, and the iconic Promenade au Faubourg (collection 2016) by architect and illustrator Nigel Peake.
