Jon Sherman, founder and creative director behind Flavor Paper, brought wall coverings back to life. Their wild, Insta-worthy wallpaper installations have blessed the walls of MoMa, Palette (Bergdorf Goodman's restaurant), Brooklyn Museum, the Whitney Museum, and many more. While they are known worldwide for their mastery in hand screen printing, digital printing has allowed them to push boundaries and turn an age old tradition of wall coverings into art.
The wallpaper in our space is done by Flavor Paper, who had the genius idea to turn original images of cloud slime into the loveliest of pastel ombre walls. We spent an afternoon with the wall master, fluffing up slime and placing it on the floor for the photo shoot. It was then transformed into a 12' high repeating pattern that now makes our guests feel like they're inside of a cloud slime.
Flavor Paper was also behind the wallpaper in the kitchen our Slimers in Residence use in the window. It was created by photographing clear slime and charms. And you'll find the brand's black light activated wallpaper in Sloomoo's Cove.
Jon added a dimension to our experience that traditional paint would never have been able to do. We sat down with him to learn more about his practice and his collab with the Beastie Boys.
