First Wedding Anniversary: Paper Designs

Posted on Aug 21, 2016 by

At Warehouse Home, we are passionate about exceptional design and supporting talented designer-makers. We also feel strongly about recycling and sustainability. Identifying recycled paper and paper-based designs as a key interiors trend, we commissioned seven talented designers to each rework small batches of Warehouse Home Issue Three. Exclusive to the Warehouse Home Shop, each one of these delicate paper based designs are the ideal first wedding anniversary gift. Honour the first of many a themed anniversary with these thoughtful, unique and personal paper designs.

Dating back to early Victorian origin, the traditional first anniversary gift of paper suggests a symbolic reference to fragility, modesty and a new page on which to print forever memories. Celebrate a paper anniversary with a quirky spin on an established custom.

James’ London studio specialises in materials research. He designed a special ‘gun’ to extrude paper pulp in interesting and unusual forms. Once hard, they’re painted in natural lacquer.

Every one of BLURECO founder Alicja Pelda’s designs
is handcrafted from 100% recycled paper. The creative process, which involves reducing papers and newspapers into pulp, produces almost no waste at all. And the finished results certainly prove that one man’s trash can be transformed into another man’s treasure. We commissioned Alicja to create a set of limited edition table and wall clocks using waste copies of Warehouse Home Issue Two. The newspaper lends a soft grey tone and tactile quality to the clocks. A final splash of deep inky blue is a bold contrast.
