The brief was to design a sculpture entirely made of selected exclusive paper from Antalis with the theme "Graphic winter" and a feeling of cold, frost and snow.
14 designs was selected by the jury from Antalis and placed in their storefront at Stureplan in Stockholm as winter decoration 2016/2017, and I was one of the lucky ones!
The sculpture is made of the exclusive papers White Gold 250 g on the outside and Sunny green on the inside.
I wanted to keep my design as clean as possible to let the papers speak for themselves and the geometric shape of the balls helps displaying the shiny properties of the paper from all different directions, both in daylight as well as in the evening. The shimmering exterior creates the illusion that the lantern is lit, and the green surfaces on the inside reinforces this further.
The geometric balls are consciously composed in an asymmetrically way to give the design a playful expression. My intention is to bring back the memories from the childhood and the magic in the first sparkling snow.
