very wonderful new posts

Here is some info about Matt Gagnon's recycled paper 'chairs' in shinkoyosister's post (#19)
Quote:
recycled paper with oil finish
shipping weight 60 LBS
lead time 6-8 weeks
mattstudio /

I wonder what this oil finish is all about
Could be for waterproofing
maybe linseed oil

Nice that they give you info about their products
This is about the lighting in the same post (#19)
except by John Wigmore

Quote:
The materials used for our light sculptures is a sturdy combination of machine-made papers and acrylic polyurethane.

....

All Wigmore light sculptures use incandescent light. The wall sconces and sculptures use incandescent tubes ranging from 35 watts to 150 watt bulbs. Most ceiling pendants use regular 40 - 75 watt household bulbs.

We use low-maintenance long-lasting bulbs. The Osram Linestra bulbs that we use have a life of 1 - 2 years.
And they have an assortment of paper samples to choose from here

Thanks you very much Gius, for initiating this so beautiful and interesting thread and thanks to all who posted! It is a kind of "dream of papers". Merci beaucoup!

This is very cool. I would love to see an akari lamp in person. They probably would be very delicate though.
