Paper and Thread Intertwine to Create a Reshaping Lighting Design | Paperwork

Frederik Gustav, a Copenhagen-based design studio, recently introduced a lighting installation created out of light-diffusing paper screens that are held together by fine threads. Named Paperwork, the light system is one of the 10 Danish designs that are presented in The Mindcraft Project exhibition. Know more on SURFACES REPORTER (SR).

Paperwork comprises light-diffusing paper screens that are suspended with a series of threads and weighed down by small steel weights.

The steel and threads twist together to create tension that is required to hold Paperwork’s translucent paper sheets around the artificial light without breaking the delicate sheets. The intertwines create parallel lines to fasten the relatively light object paper.

The exposed system of the light installation highlights the value of paper showcasing its characteristic of opacity and textural beauty once lit alongside its simplicity and everyday usability. The light-diffusing sheets are made from cardboard paper. The designer decides to pick cardboard as it would give out a copper-like hue once illuminated. The paper is also treated with beeswax so as to make it more translucent.

According to the designer, the design alignment of Paperwork can be scaled and modified into different arrangements as required. Gustav, during the development of the light installation, moved the installation from his small studio to an open production hall, thereby opening the door to the architectural nature of the lighting design; courtesy of the constructing spatial installation method that allows it to be reshaped, modified and scaled.
