Spam E-Mail Wallpaper! Junk Mail Becomes Home Decor With Spamghetto.
You know those god-awful spam advertisements you receive in your inbox promising a greater sex life, a larger penis or wealth beyond your wildest dreams? Well, finally someone has taken those and put them to good design use.
Italy based design studio, ToDo, has brilliantly turned that e-mail spam into purchasable and customizable wallpaper or wall coverings under the name "Spamghetto".
The result is a print-on-demand, “green” FSC-certified, non-woven wall covering has won international recognition with a Silver Award at the 2010 European Design Awards.
The process is just as fascinating as the product itself: ToDo created a generative software that feeds on spam’s enticing claims, creating mesmerizing, subtly offbeat digital patterns in which one striking offer leads to the other in a compelling, unique design.
You can choose between various styles according to your taste, with thin or chunky strands forming different patterns.
If you want a custom version, provide them with your room's dimensions and using their generative software, they can produce a design that wraps and folds around all the objects that sit on the on the wall's surface.
