Luxurious Wall Coverings Use Oxidized and Corroded Metal Foil

French artist shows unique panels and wallpapers creations at ICFF in New York May 19-22

Dallas, TX, May 06, 2007 --( After emigrating to France over 20 years ago, Hungarian artist Gabor Ulveczki started selling his gold foil kits to art framers and French National Archive restorers and bookbinders under his brand Ulgad’or©. Soon, haute couture and theater set designers were snapping up his “neo-baroque” metallic foil over wild silk and organza fabric panels.

Now producing in small series, Gabor constantly “cooks up” new metal oxidation and corrosion techniques for copper, brass, gold, silver and aluminum. Fantastic wallpapers, wall panels and decorative objects roll out of his magic Parisian workshop. He even invented a new glue that allows gilding ceramic, wood and silk.

Panel of various sizes are made to order. Wallpaper rolls come in a number of supports such as 14g Reemay paper used by fashion designers, window dressers and interior decorators and 200g gilded Awagami paper.

This summer the French jeweler Cartier will dress up its store windows throughout the world with Ulgad’or© wallpapers. In the USA, the luxury retailer Neiman Marcus offers his lacquer panels. Gabor’s creations are distributed in many countries. In the Awagami paper factory sells his wallpapers. In Italy Avigdor is the local distributor. The renowned British wallpaper company Cole and Son recently commissioned him to create a collection called “Ulgad’or©, hand made guilded collection”, sold in London and also distributes in many other countries.

ULGAD’OR is currently negotiating with a well known New York showroom for local wallpaper distribution.

Gabor also executes private commissions for unique wall panels, fabrics, room screens and other decorative objects.

You will be able to see Gabor’s, Ulgad’or© collection at the ICFF show at the Javits Center in New York, May 19 to 22, Booth 607.
