strength

2018

Strength is an explorative research about paper’s quality. Paper is one of the most used materials in the world even if all its properties are not always materialized.

 

From the simplicity of paper techniques like thread binding and foldings and related material like glue and binding net, the results are very light structures that can hold heavyweight thanks to tension and compression.

The paper is laminated with a specific net used by bookbinders. Than shaped through folds and
thread binding according to geometrical proprieties. Finally, it is stiffed with a process of
salinization. The result is very light structures (50-60 gr) that can hold until 30 kg.
