Under her label TENUE DE VILLE, the young Belgian designer Alexia de Ville de Goyet has launched three collections of original wallpapers, 100% made in Belgium.
Zipping fast between her design studio in Brussels and production workshop based in Zele, Alexia de Ville de Goyet is a young artist who in 2014 started the creation of wall coverings, then followed founding her brand - Tenue de ville.
Always based on very eclectic sources of inspiration emerged from her travels (faraway or imaginary) and her superb curiosity for fauna and flora, abstract drawings are crafted here with elegance and modernity. Well versed in mixed techniques thanks to her multidisciplinary artistic training in Brussels and London, Alexia explores all mediums to give shape to her ideas, shifting freely from engraving to drawing, to cutting and assembling paper or photography before reworking her findings using graphics programs. Playing with craftsmanship and new technology is instrumental in the production processes of these very personal designs and finishing’s. The base, non-woven, is printed using two techniques selected according to various applications, either traditional (with a copper cylinder for conventional rolls) or inkjet in digital version for wall panels. After City Garden in 2015 and Ode in 2016, the Balsam collection released in January 2017 consists among others of a flight of hummingbirds, a cloud of opulent peonies and impressive stormy skies each in six colors: bluish greens, powdery pinks, saffron yellows and copper accents.
