3D recycled wallpaper

V2 tiles are 3D, reconfigurable, inexpensive wallpaper tiles that allow one to customize the feel, look, and acoustic properties of any environment in minutes. V2 wallpaper is made from one hundred percent pre- and post-consumer waste paper that is molded in a thermoforming process. Production of the tiles takes place in a closed loop manufacturing environment where paper and water are continually cycled through the process, virtually eliminating waste. The tiles are also completely recyclable at the end of their useful life.

Different patterns may be achieved by rotating the tiles, allowing users to have unique patterned wallpaper in wall and ceiling areas. The tiles can be installed temporarily with double stick tape, thumb tacks, staples, nails, etc. or permanently with water-based wallpaper pastes. The product can be painted or finished in a variety of ways, including standard paints, magic markers, and bio-benign varnishes. In addition, the tiles may be easily cut to fit light switches and other fixtures with scissors or a utility knife.
