ELISAVA SURPRISES WITH «PAPERPHYLIA» IN THE DESIGN’S CAPITAL
In collaboration with some of the most cutting-edge design studios of the current Catalonian panorama, ELISAVA Barcelona School of Design and Engineering disembarks in Milan with an installation that explores the new uses and applications of paper, an impressive scenario.
Milan, April 6th.- “Paperphylia” was inaugurated yesterday. It is an incredible installation located in Milan (Provata Oslavia, 7), made by a group of Degree students of ELISAVA and their tutors, on the occasion of the Fuorisalone of this year. The installation wants to give an experimental approach to paper uses and it’s done by speculating about different possibilities of this material: Can we listen to paper? Could it be possible to make music with it? What kind of information can it transmit? At which point can it be dematerialized? Is paper alive? “Paperphylia” is the result of a workshop that the students developed under the supervision of a prestigious team of tutors, formed by the designer Martín Azúa and members of Lo Siento Studio, Maio Studio and Hunch Office, all of them prominent referents in the fields of product design, graphic design and interior design.
«Paperphylia»: the paper revolution is still alive
“Paperphylia” presents a structure entirely done with paper and shows a series of creative possibilities of this material, looking for disruptivity and focusing on paper as a “revolutionary” material. As we said, the installation is the inspiring result of a multidisciplinary workshop made by ELISAVA students, which reflects the current moment of the School thanks to a conceptual assembly that not only shows the possibilities of paper in rare fields, but also gives space for the various specialities of ELISAVA Degrees: Product Design, Space Design, Graphic Design, Interaction Design and Engineering in Industrial Design. This project is also part of the project Decoding Creative Process, since it shows the creative process that the students followed, matching the research projects Decoding by ELISAVA and Sapiens by Ferran Adrià.
ELISAVA, the creative innovative university of Barcelona
ELISAVA is the pioneer design school in Spain. Furthermore, through ELISAVA Research, its multidisciplinary research unit, the School supports the generation of knowledge, the decoding of the creative process, the attraction of talent and the university-companies collaboration. This last item is strengthened through various projects and is, in fact, the DNA of the School. ELISAVA supports research to create the future industry with a social and sustainable value that encourages the entrepreneurship and new business models, with a knowledge applied to material science and technology and productive processes, which allows being creative in the design of new products, systems and services.
