The use of non-traditional materials in non-traditional ways was a major
trend in Milan!!!! One of the most interesting material
used was paper.....to create furniture!!!!
Designer Alessandro Antoniazzi and artist Walter Davanzo collaborated to present this extraordinary paper environment. "Paperboard Innovation" at Superstudio in Zona Tortona. The collection of furniture and accessories is made entirely of paper, and it includes lamps, chairs, sofas, armoires, chaises, mirrors, bookcases, and tables, as well as a moose to hang on your wall!!! Everything is made from Ti-Vu Plast, paper honey-comb used primarily in the door industry as filling material.
"An encounter between art and design, an emotional fusion inspired by love, sculpted forms from the material itself, giving life to pieces of furniture made with environmentally friendly materials, such as honeycomb cardboard, embellished with printed pictorial images."
And the really good news is that the pieces are
stable and secure.....I sat on them!!!!
