Material Immaterial Lab has come up with a series of unconventional designs of light fittings and furniture made from recycled paper using the concept of papier-mâché.
Description by Material Immaterial Lab:
The texture and details in nature have always been awe-inspiring, from the form of the flowers to the translucence of ferns, the texture of mushrooms, softness of mosses and the strength of the nautilus, they have all mesmerized us at some point of time in our lives. In these moments of revelation lies our inspiration for creating these sublime objects of daily use.
These limited edition objects are a part of the series ‘Organic’. Each piece has been painstakingly handcrafted with utmost attention to detail and strives to capture the essence of nature.
When it came to building our ideas into products, papier-mâché became the preferred material due to its immense versatility, durability and extremely accommodating nature allowing us to add subtract and make spontaneous improvements in the form. Due to the unique layering process of handcrafting, each of these pieces achieve their unique texture and colour, depending on the kind of paper used at various stages of creation.
