PAPIER MACHINE, where paper and electronics meet.
Papier Machine it’s a book that contains six interactive, electronic toys made from paper and silkscreen printed with conductive silver ink.
Papier Machine is an expedition into the invisible aesthetics of circuits where paper, electricity, graphics and play meet. Circuits hide a surprising narrative potential whose stories Papier Machine chose to tell extending the possibilities of paper from colours and shapes with conductive ink.
This absolutely great idea was developed by a trio of French designers: Raphael and Marion are both designers in Pinaffo Pluvinage design studio in Paris while Agnes comes from the music and charity areas.
“We live in a world of invisible beauty. Electronics are everywhere,” says Agnes Agullo, one part of the trio that created Papier Machine
The initial prototype of this book won a Red Dot Design Award and the Audi Talent Award in 2016, the latter allowing them to research the concept further with an exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris. Since then, the trio has been developing the book ready for a Kickstarter campaign.
