Crumpled, crinkled, wrinkled, scrunched, bunched, twisted. Playing with texture is fun and what easier material to distort than paper?
But wait, none of the following designs are what they appear to be. They trick your eyes and challenge your associations. Do you think the surface of that cushion is rough and would rustle when touched? Are the lights soft and malleable? Would you dent the cups more when you picked them up or crease those fragile bowls and bins?
How cool is this material contradiction?
