New in at Material are these wonderful vinyl wall stickers by Woozy.
Born from the mind of two creative designers, specialising in illustration, decorative graphics and concept design, Woozy's aim is to create and stimulate spaces using brand new techniques as a fresh, innovative, alternative to traditional decoration.
The collection is totally conceptualized designed and produced by us to offer a product that is 100% handmade.
The stickers are specifically designed for wall application, but they are equally suitable for windows, mirrors, doors, laptops and phones and for any other clean and dry surface.
They are easy to remove and don't leave any mark. Damage on paintwork may happen only if the wall is not in good condition. Stickers may be applied only once.
Woozy are also available for customization services for people who want to create a truly unique and original space.
The design pictured "Life" is available in store.

The city as a living body that is born, develops and differentiate its buildings and functions: from the very first nucleus (an isolated church among the trees in the countryside) to the huge metropolis crowded with streets, pylons, factories and stations.
Popville is a pop-up book in which each page corresponds to a moment of the city development. Some urban and landscape elements remain constant references for the growth of the city, while others simply disappear and make place to new ones.
What lasts is the steady stream of occasions and possibilities which, in the book just like in reality, remain unpredictable till the moment of turning the page.
A funny book to be flicked through, unexpected in its simplicity: Popville is a vivid and faithful translation of the living course of a city.
Anouck Boisrobert and Louis Rigaud graduated at the École Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg. Popville is their first book.
Joy Sorman is author of novels published in France by Gallimard.
Dimension: cm 14.5x29.0
Pages: 14 with pop-up inserts
