Paperscapes is an ongoing exploration into paper-made objects that function as furniture, lighting, and wall treatments. Using recycled paper sourced from the local industry waste, and drawing from our sculptural backgrounds, we have manipulated it in a similar way to how clay can be sculpted and have created limited edition functional stools/tea tables and dome lights.
Tea Tables were the beginning of the new technique in sculpting with paper pulp that we have now expanded in many different directions. The paper is sculpted over a reinforced cardboard armature. Once dry and sealed, they are light, durable pieces of furniture that will last for years.
Tea Tables are made to order and can be customized in different paper and pattern colours.
A custom collection of Paperscapes tables was made for the New York City Public Art Fund’s annual event in 2016, in collaboration with Eric Zimmerman and Nathalie Pozzi. The “pawns” were a part of a human-scale game, called 16 Tons, designed by the couple for the event. The tables remained as part of the permanent collection of the New York City Public Art Fund. They also debuted at Mint London’s White Canvas Show during the London Design Festival in fall of 2016.
