Petra Schmidt and Nicola Stattmann
Birkhauser, $130

In Unfolded: Paper in Design, Art, Architecture and Industry paper conquers the third dimension. The undreamed-of possibilities paper holds today for lightweight construction, product design, fashion and art are demonstrated through a survey of paper projects. From Paper, the collection of bags by Stefan Diez, to the paper models of Konstantin Grcic and the scented paper garments of Issey Miyake, this book presents paper as a high-quality contemporary and ecological material. From Japanese washi paper and paper foam, to ceramic paper and carbon fibre paper, Unfolded presents the latest in research and development, as well as the most important methods and technologies in handcrafts and industry.
