Poetry in Paper





It all started twenty years ago when artist Pierre Pozzi built a table using paper pulp. What was an experiment became a trademark, and his career using paper as a medium was launched. But it's in his loft-like duplex in eastern Paris that Pierre has created what he calls his "masterpiece." Here in his home, delicate and susceptible to a pencil stroke or flame, his fragile work in white paper adds poetry to the day — a chandelier in the dining room hovers like a gentle cloud above the table, softly rustling with each chance air current. Curtains of fringed paper in the kitchen and bedroom add texture and movement, bringing a quietly mysterious life to normally static spaces. In the end, though, his approach goes beyond aesthetics to expand into his true message: "I think people should learn to respect and be more careful and attentive to objects. Thus they will respect each other." More (in French) here. Via Marie Claire Maison.
