Papercuts is a series of designed objects that explore the possible uses of paper and cardboard. Based on the art of cutting paper, which has evolved all over the world to adopt different cultural styles, it focuses on the transformation of this material into everyday objects.
The philosophy is simple and it combines two basic elements, functionality and cost-effective and recyclable materials.
Papercuts is succeeding to evolve techniques to transform cardboard into durable objects for daily use. The design of the objects is simple, clear and focused on the ease of fitting in any decorative environment. Papercuts is produced and packaged with simple methods by using only the absolutely necessary resources.
