Inspired in rapid prototyping processes, Mathias Bengtsson creates a beautiful piece half way between furniture and art. He first modelled the final shape of the armchair in clay, and then sliced it into two thousand layers of recycled paper coated with a thin film of glue, later assembled and glued together with pressure and heat.
The final output has the richness of forms and shadows of a textile, and the use of both white and black paper sheets donates the chair with a double face: a soft, lighter one when only the edges of the layers are visible and a stronger and somehow more agressive one when the edges do not coincide.
