File Under Pop is specialized in surface design.

The company directed by Josephine Akvama Hoffmeyer transforms rooms by clothing walls, floors and ceilings with handmade tiles from clay and lava stone, hand painted wallpaper and exclusive paint.

All products are processed entirely by hand, combining antique craftsmanship with modern technology, resulting in characteristic and unique surfaces and finishes.

Texture and colors are the keywords of File Under Pop.

The File Under Pop tile collection consists of 25 motifs and 38 solid colors in three different finishes –
Matt, Shiny and Shiny Crystal. The company has a poetic and musical approach to the creation of spaces. File Under Pop plays with moods and contrasts in relation to colors and finishes.

PROCESS

Lavastone is extracted from the active volcano Mount Etna on Sicilly at a depth of 20-30 metres where the stone has been compacted for 2-3000 years. The lavastone is then glazed and decorated by hand and is transformed to ceramic by hours of oven-firing.

Clay comes from a family owned production an hour’s drive from Valencia, where File Under Pop’s tiles are crafted.

All tiles are worked entirely by hand. Silkscreening or hand printing technique are used to create patterns and motifs.

File Under Pop has it’s own production of wallpaper in Copenhagen. Paint is used together with copper- , silver-, white gold- and 23 carat gold leaf. File Under Pop uses wallpaper to stand out in a room in a completely new way. The company offers a system of steel framing and stucco moulding, whereby it is possible to hang the wallpaper without pasting it on to the wall. The idea is that the wallpaper does not necessarily cover the whole surface area of a wall. A single sheet is 100x180cm, and alone, one piece can lend a room unique character and personality.

Paint is created in collaboration with Jotun Denmark – a leading Norwegian producer of quality decorator’s paint for more than 85 years.
