Coffee corner manga wall

One of the most wicked and fab clothes stores of Tokyo is located in the Koenjikita suburb and didn’t just set Björn and me back more than a few Yen, but also disclosed a very impressive interior decoration idea, which I allowed myself to copy for the coffee corner of my new Berlin home: walls fully covered in japanese manga cutouts! I restricted myself to a vertical stripe though, instead of doing the entire apartment B-) Cutouts are from three different random mangas I purchased at Scifi bokhandeln in Stockholm recently. Producing the panel (substrate of very stiff paper/cartonage with pages of manga comic books individually glued on with photo glue spray) was quite a nice haptic piece of work. The panel is nailed to the wall and can thus be easily removed again. The lips and nose tag of this post is of course for the smell and tase of the coffee which is intrinsically linked to looking at the wall! Arigatooooooooooooo Tokyooooooooooo!
