The design of the Layers wallpaper is based on the brightly coloured tape used to seal boxes, with some strips labelled 'fragile', while others feature the yellow and black stripes of hazard tape.
A few of the strips read 'I'm Here 2:' alongside the selection of tick boxes that offer responses like 'play', 'forget' and 'destroy'.

'Layers' by Richard Hutten in Design Museum London
The Design Museum in London decorated its cafe with the Layers wallpaper by Richard Hutten for Designwall. The Layers wallpaper is based on the everyday tapes that you would use to seal a cardboard box. Using a series of existing tape designs and the development of new patterns, Hutten transformed the idea into a wallpaper. The wallpaper is not to be seen as a finished piece, but as a wallpaper which invites you to draw or write on it. On one tape you can even leave your mark expressing your feelings or needs, in order to make it personal and unique.
Layers is a continuation from Hutten’s Layers Furniture (Milan Design Week 2008), originally designed for a room in the Llayers Lloyd Hotel in Tokyo. Layers is one of the unique wallpapers of Designwall. Designwall is a initiative of Ontwerpwerk, The Hague.
