Wallpaper* and REVOLUTION collaborate on design-led prefabricated properties
Wallpaper*, the international design, fashion and lifestyle title, is set to collaborate with design development platform REVOLUTION on a range of design-led prefabricated homes and pavilions targeting a global market. Wallpaper* will be tapping into its black book of connections to recruit six established architects to design pre-crafted structures that are in keeping with the Wallpaper* aesthetic. REVOLUTION, whose CEO Robbie Antonio has a background in property developments in the US and the Philippines as well as possessing an extensive background as an art and design collector, will produce the collectible properties. The project will encompass mass-market design-led prefabricated homes, as well as a high-end offering that allows customisation and bespoke design. The project will also produce designs for a series of pavilion structures, designed for temporary and non-residential use. Wallpaper* and REVOLUTION will be producing prototypes of each design, which they will launch at selected events on the international design calendar. This new partnership follows the launch of Wallpaper* U.S. Bespoke Edition in November 2015 and reinforces Time Inc.’s strategy to extend its existing brands into new areas of growth.
