Low paper armchair Black Paper 37- by Kibardin Design is a result of experiments with various materials and exploration of the co-existence of, ‘Chaos and Sequence’. The armchair is made of 37 paper layers and 20 details of gofer cardboard. The functional surface is formed by putting paper layers one by one to archive the required height on the chair.
Simple paper not only possesses high constructional characteristics but can also dazzle through the beauty of its contours.
A distinctive texture of the chairs’ overlay encourages a dialog with a user. A distinctly personalized form of the chair can be created by rumpling and chopping paper layers.

  2. Ghostly International presents Matthew Shlian from Ghostly International on Vimeo.

    Matthew Shlian works within the increasingly nebulous space between art and engineering. As a paper engineer, Shlian’s work is rooted in print media, book arts, and commercial design, though he frequently finds himself collaborating with a cadre of scientists and researchers who are just now recognizing the practical connections between paper folding and folding at microscopic and nanoscopic scales.

    An MFA graduate of Cranbrook Academy, Shlian divides his time between teaching at the University of Michigan, mocking up new-fangled packaging options for billion dollar blue-chips, and creating some of the most inspiring paper art around.

    Ghostly teamed up with the Ann Arbor-based photographer and videographer Jakob Skogheim, to produce this feature short, which combines interview and time-lapse footage of Shlian creating several stunning new pieces.

  4. PROTEIGON from BURAYAN on Vimeo.

    Proteigon, by Steven Briand.

    Steven Briand, who was a recent intern over at Partizan, created this amazing stop-motion video called Protéigon in just two months. The short is pretty ambitious, animating paper in some pretty fantastic ways. When you think about it, this video is made up of nothing but paper, but when you add in the subtle motions of his arms and the lighting, it becomes something special.

    Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann are the wunderkind designers behind the contemporary design studio Zim and Zou based in Nancy, France. The duo explores a myriad of mediums including paper sculpture, installation, graphic design, illustration, and web design for their clients, landing their work in numerous print publications including Papercraft 2. This latest collection of work entitled Back to Basics is almost a year in the making (and apparently still in progress). Each colorful device is cut meticulously by hand utilizing sustainable paper, and even the smallest “waste” scraps are re-used to form some of the smallest detailed components. These are only a handful of the photos, see many more detailed shots here.
