Artichoke Mixed Book Page Pendant

paperback pendant

Allison Patrick, a recent graduate from architecture school in New York City has come up with this thes gorgeous lanterns and pendants made out of old paperback pages and other materials. I love the reuse of materials for a different purpose. It is a clever, economic and environmentally sound way of designing. Good on you girl! The hardest thing to do in design seem to be the remaking of one material and its function to a completely new role, form and function. The reason being that the initial purpose is so etched into your mind that I reckon it takes a lot of creativity to be able to step away from this preconceived idea of what the object or material is and to completely transform it.
