I was commissioned to transform a 400-page novel into a functional product. I was curious to utterly transform the paper into a new material that would partially obscure its origins.
As such I experimented with glueing individual sheets of paper into a giant log which I then transformed into the base of a light. (Notice any similarities to the Troncs project?) As a first prototype the results are not perfect, but they are certainly a step in the right direction. From a distance it looks like a normal lamp, but up close one starts to notice the remnants of text on the slats enveloping the light as well as on the paper base.
