The Materialists

Paper is one of the materials that is most used in our society. We trust in it like in no other materials. It carries our news, transfers our knowledge, legitimates our travels by train and plane, proves our identities, ensures the setting up of our laws, whispers our words of love; we even trust it to clean our most intimate parts. Through this confidence, it has become the most produced material, hence the main source of waste as well. Often reduced to a simple sheet, the need for recycling prove that this vegetal pulp can be used in richer ways than just as a media for printed words and imageries. The Designers played with the different aspects of paper, working in diverse experimental ways, in order to reveal some of this potential that our cultures and industries have left unravelled.
