Paper Vessels by Romy Kühne

Another Tijdelijk Arnhems Collectief discovery from Dutch Design Week 2009came in the form of these fabulous origami-inspired paper vases and tea set by talented designer, Romy Kühne. Thanks to Romy who was sweet enough to respond to my emails, and shared with me a few images of her beautiful, intricately-folded vessels. Check below for more details.

Romy’s tea set whose folded edges are outlined in blue is a material and surface response to the traditional blue-and-white glazed china set, but in paper.

To create a watertight container, Romy applies a hardener such as polyethylene coating often used in the food packaging industry.
