Béatrice Coron: Stories Cut From Paper

Beatrice Coron creates intricate worlds, cities and countries, heavens and hells! Her patience is inspiring, crafting extraordinary pieces of art from scissors and paper. We love this Ted talk, she has used her creativity to improve public spaces and the environment. Going the extra mile, we could all take a leaf from her book!

Tapehook!

The Japanese are known for their love of stationery, so it’s no surprise that it is Japanese design studio Torafu Architects, who are behind these brilliant Tapehooks. The design studio wanted to create a product that took advantage of adhesive techniques – and so it seemed only fitting that they would look at tape itself.

Indeed the Tapehooks have actually been made from paper from the outset – created by soaking paper then curling it before letting it dry. These are then used as moulds for the colourful set of hooks that can hold anything from spectacles to jewellery or keys. A charming idea! We love.
