With a concept of simple perfection, the architect Giancarlo Zema has created Gothìk, for Origami Furniture. It consists of an innovative modular system for trade fair stands that draws its inspiration from French Gothic architecture, the great lancet arches and ribbed vaults that direct the forces onto the bundle pillars. The 3x3x3m base module consists of few self-supporting elements in 2cm thick recycled, self-extinguishing cardboard, with integrated LED lighting. Each module can be erected in 45 minutes by only two people and without the need for any screws or glue. It offers a countless number of possible configurations with virtually endless repeatability. The furnishings too are made from recycled cardboard with the possibility of two-tone colours and customised graphics. The Gothìk stand brings cheerfulness and eco-sustainability to the world of trade fairs.Show all collection

At first glance STRIPE appeals simply because it offers soft, pleasing lines. In fact, this series of items, designed by Annalisa Grasselli,incorporates an elegant and efficient design that creates an eye-catching interplay of solids and voids, enhances the texture of the cardboard and entices with a pattern of contrasting stripes. Each element is smooth and rough, soft and rigid. It can be couloured, branded or left neutral and natural. The cardboard is folded for different uses and, according to the occasion, elegantly becomes a functional object: container, support, item of furniture, as well as chair, magazine rack, rocking chair or storage unit.Guarda tutta la collezione
This floor lamp is inspired by rice-pickers, harvests in the fields and sheaves of straw, which are depicted in its shape and name.
It is made of recycled cardboard and, thanks to a series of “joints”, can be assembled without the use of glue.
Like a sheaf tied in the centre by a piece of string, both the slender shape, tapered in the centre, and the cardboard slats, arranged in a “sun ray” formation, highlight the lamp’s verticality.
Illuminated with low consuming LEDs, Bouquet encompasses ecology, design and the poetry of light.
Symmetry that becomes an object of design. A unique, easy chair for two people sitting back to back, but also for just one person. Gentle flowing lines create an object that has different functions: double or single seat, coffee table, storage unit or magazine rack. Its composition highlights the recycled material, making it an environmentally friendly object of design, suitable for public waiting and meeting rooms. Designed by Nicola Gerosa.Guarda tutta la collezione
