Below are some of the best conversation-starting pieces from Paper Collective art prints.
1. Paper Collective Floating Leaves Print
The advantages of integrating plant life into your home and workspace are well known, however, the upkeep and burden of maintaining a plant often deters people from developing their green fingers. But in order to make vegetation more accessible to all, Paper Collective has teamed up with MOEBE and NORM Architects to release a series of art prints which include leaves suspended within an individual frame.
The floating leaves series is inspired by the gathering of botanic samples and classical botanic illustration. The photographed leaves rest somewhere in between healthy greenery and decay, while the floating leaves feature transparent botanical photographs that offer the illusion of real-life leaves suspended within the frame.
The photographs were made using UV printing that allows a photo to be printed onto transparent foil. The prints, which come in three different sizes and a variety of designs, also highlight Paper Collective’s alignment with creativity and nature.
2. Paper Collective Norm Layers Print
Norm Architects were recently named Danish designers of the year. Their unique Norm Layers Print gives an incredible length and breadth of the country’s amazing Copenhagen posters design making it a fairly extraordinary achievement.
The design studio has made its mark in the art industry by impressing with their range of soft minimalist furniture, lighting and accessories as well as collaborating with reputable companies such as Menu and more recently Paper Collective.
For its collaboration with Paper Collective, Norm Architects splash ink onto a surface to display how it is one of the most unpredictable and exciting means of applying color. The result is a unique print which creates an illusion of spatial depth and differentiating shades of color, this is a unique touch that is above your average piece of wall art.
3. Paper Collective Terrazzo Print
When it comes to choosing an alternative to Paper Collective’s most-popular prints such as the Floating Leaves selection and the Paper Collective Resting Feet series then the Terrazzo Print is the best choice because of its depth of character.
Terrazzo Print is a classic flooring material that consists of stones set in concrete. Paper Collective challenges the material characteristics by making the terrazzo paper crispy thin and lightweight.
But the sentiment features remain authentic. The light and shadows on each terrazzo folding makes it stand out from its background while giving the art print a special type of texture that is not ordinarily seen in modern art prints.
