Well-known and widely appreciated Japanese studio Nendo implemented a project titled Un-printed Material. With the use of 3D printer, they were able to create objects, that look like the fine outlines of paper.
The team of Nendo decided to examine the possibilities of a medium used by graphic designers – in this instance, paper.
"By zeroing in on the finer details and carefully representing them in the outlines, we attempted to capture that unique essence of paper that we have all felt at one time or another,” explained the designers. Some of the outlines display rounding, while others have been torn or folded. The final outcome creates a magnifique visual interplay between perception and reality. The project was exhibited at Tokyo’s Creation Gallery G8, a space dedicated to visual communication.
