In the 60′s using paper for dresses, knickers and chairs just seemed like a gimic, it was all throw away disposable. Now the use of paper is a much more serious proposition.
Shown above Paper Collection by Studio Job for Mooi. Created with a wooden core and cardboard the pieces are then lacquered to make a very durable and practical material. They initially created a chandelier and dining table and this year added a screen and side table to the range.

Above Papier bags by Saskia Diez Made using paper modeling techniques combined with a bit of gluing and sewing Saskia has been playing with the idea of traditional luxury. The paper used is Tyvek synthetic paper, its waterproof, tear proof and over time will crease and crumple. The shine of the paper has been removed by screen printing to give it back that feel of paper. It seems an elaborate process for a paper bag but then this isn’t a traditional paper bag and this isn’t traditional luxury. http://www.saskia-diez.de/
