Surface Design

Vivid backdrops for human activity.

Michelle Weinberg transforms surfaces for interiors, architecture and public spaces: paint murals, glass and ceramic mosaic, cement and ceramic tile, hand-knotted rugs, textiles, wallpapers and more.

Hand-marbleized papers made in the studio are translated into hand-knotted rugs and custom digitally printed wall murals.
