It was during their many trips to Japan that the fashion architect and designer Maurizio Galante and trend forecaster and designer Tal Lancman discovered the monsters of the 1960s science fiction TV series “Ultraman”. On each trip they would bring back two or three molded plastic figurines, ancestors of the “Pokemon”, which they hunt at flea markets or antique dealers and from which they drew of monsters to create a wallpaper.
This wallpaper was first designed by craftsmen in 2012 on a black background, for the scenography of the exhibition “Planète Manga” at the Centre Pompidou, where Maurizio Galante and Tal Lancman were invited to present 350 characters of their collection for the first time.
The two designers, who were committed to know-how, then turned to Pierre Frey for the development and manufacture of a version on a golden background, to completely envelope their decor for AD interiors in September 2018.
Monster Family is now part of the wallpaper collection Les Dessins 4. It is produced by the Maison Pierre Frey on a golden background, highlighting the surrealism of these extraterrestrial monsters, and on a white background, like a collection of stickers on a wall, reminiscent of the curious and childlike soul of the two creators.
