Howdy do.

So you’ve found my portfolio. I hope you dig around a little and most of all, I hope you enjoy doing so!

Book Light

Book Light

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.
