Paper in

Paper in
text by Pascal Panagiotidis for Yatzer
Sometimes the simplest things can be so ingenious. Paper is an inexpensive resource that can be transformed into amazing concepts once touched by a skilled paper artist. Dutch artist Paula Arntzen is one of these people who love paper and experiments with it. Experiments that turn into objects of desire in the world of contemporary design. After constant study and observation she managed to obtain a deep knowledge and understanding of the paper and its special characteristics; a knowledge that gives the designer the chance to demonstrate her talent by using a simple material like paper which can be transformed gracefully in any shape or form.

Arntzen’s Paper Process was presented during the new years party from platform Tape and at the Arnhem Mode Biënnale 2009. The project refers to hand made paper lanterns that can be used as a decorative touch thanks to their high quality materials and cutting edge design.
