- Academy of Design and Crafts Münster (DE), Light Sculptures Monas
The innovative design light sculptures are made of hemp cellulose. For the production of the handmade paper, they used hemp cellulose (Cannabis sativa – Moraceae) and potato flour. The round and damp handmade paper sheets dry directly on the wire frame where it is attached.
As the damp fibres links together in a natural way, usage of glue is not necessary. To improve the stability, certain functional characteristics and for paper finishing, paper pulp are mixed with environmentally friendly wall paper paste.
Later the mixture and strips of paper are applied in layers. After the drying process, the wire frame is pressed together and is removed. www.akademie-gestaltung.de
