London Design Festival 2013: design firms Studio Glowacka and Maria Fulford Architects have installed 1500 metres of undulating paper strips to create a pavilion at trade show 100% Design in London this week (+ slideshow).
Additional strips of paper drop vertically to the floor and create a perimeter for the hub.
Visitors are encouraged to share ideas on rolls of paper within the structure, which can then be torn off and taken away. "Paper is a blank canvas for communication and a receiver for ideas," Maria Fulford said.
"Paper Space is illuminated by borrowed light from the adjacent exhibitor structures, changing character like a paper chameleon depending on the neighbouring light conditions," she added.
There is also a bespoke table inside the space that was hand crafted by students at UCL Bartlett School of Architecture. It is made from five-millimetre-thick steel plates and white oak.
Paper Space is being used to hold events, talks and debates during 100% Design, which is open until tomorrow.
Other installations at London Design Festival this year include 5000 spinning paper windmills in a doorway at the V&A museum and an Escher-style installation of fifteen staircases positioned on the grass outside Tate Modern.
