To celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of AWN Pugin, a master in the use of colour, pattern and ornament and who was an ardent campaigner for the Gothic style, CAMAC Design partnered with the Fashion & Textile Museum to organise a wallpaper design competition.
Best known for his interior designs of the Palace of Westminster, Pugin was one of the first to promote the idea of 'honesty' and 'propriety' in ornament and design, enlisting ornament as a moral influence in society.
CAMAC Design has partnered with the Fashion & Textile Museum in London's Bermondsey Village, which was founded by iconic British designer Zandra Rhodes. The museum showcases a selection of designs from entries to the 4th Annual Student Wallpaper Design Competition during its current exhibition Pop! Design, Culture, Fashion.
A second display of students' work is also on show at Ramsgate Library in Kent until 20th August. Ramsgate is where Pugin designed and built The Grange, his family home, and also nearby St Augustine's church.
The full exhibition will be held in London from 14th - 20th September, forming part of the 10th London Design Festival. Set up to build links between new designers entering the creative industries and the professionals already in it, CAMAC Design is a new company founded by Caroline McNamara, an experienced event and exhibition organiser, and Vice Chair of TEXERE, Textile Education and Research in Europe.

The paper has LED lights embedded within a circuit board design.
The designer comments, "The LED wallpaper offers very thrilling possibilities to illuminate rooms: Dimmed, enigmatic light hardly revealing where the shine is coming from or an urban vibrating atmosphere – to mention only a few options."
"It’s magic! A big advantage also is that the LED wallpaper can be hung in more or fewer strips and lengths according to the architecture and furnishing of a room. Interior designers have the choice."
