ixxi at Home

13.08.14

Have you guys heard of ixxi? They are an up-and-coming brand which print photographic images (your own or from their image bank) in a unique ‘pixelised’ way. You can choose any high resolution image and create either a collage or an enlargement. The image is then divided into several durable, matte cards, which are joined together by small connecting crosses. When ixxi contacted me recently to see if I was interested in reviewing their product, curiosity got the best of me and I’m glad it did. It was a fun little project selecting and ordering my ixxi. Here’s how it turned out!

Pretty cool, right? I have given it a place behind my dining table for now, but I love that it’s so easy to move around so it will likely move to the studio when we are finished working on it.

I chose an image by Zakaria Rakha, whose photograph I stumbled across on Instagram one evening during a random search and caught my eye. I loved this image for it’s graphic yet ethereal quality, and because it took me back to my childhood, when I was convinced that seeing a flock of birds in flight was a lucky charm. I would whisper the words “A flock of birds before my eyes, what will be my next surprise” as the birds flew overhead, and then would really believe something wonderful would happen. I still do it and it drives my husband nuts! I swear he thinks I’m crazy.

But he likes the birds.

What do you think? It was super easy to put together and install. I did mine with the help of my toddler, who loved clicking the little crosses into the holes in each corner! I think it’s a truly unique product and I love the flexibility ixxi offers to those looking for a unique, quality and versatile feature for their interior that is also affordable.

    It turned out so beautiful! I have this grey wall at my living room and I’m so bored of it… I think I would like to cover it with an ixxi image, what do you suggest?
