Concrete cladding with decorative relief

From a distance Walled Paper appears to be typical applied patterned paper, but it is a concrete panel with a pattern cast into its surface with a textural depth of 1/64 to 3/16 inches (.03 to .5 centimeters). Combining the raw effect of concrete with the decorative effect of wallpaper and other fine patterning, Walled Paper is appropriate for use in applications ranging from internal and external cladding systems to floors and surfaces. At its finest casting depth the effect is barely distinguishable from wallpaper, imparting a subtle satinlike pattern to this most industrial of materials. Available in Brutalist gray concrete, in Victoriana black, or Portland white, the lightweight panels can be adapted to most architectural attachment and cladding mechanisms or employed as standalone panels.
