olivia decaris





item: 5, necklace
designer: olivia decaris

comments: olivia is a french industrial designer and illustrator living in london. this paper necklace she designed uses two sets of five strips of paper which are woven together. the choice of material is interesting. the intention is that it is worn just once. the humble quality of paper makes sense for the short lived use, but the design elevates the humbleness with a dollop of sophistication. it's a thrill to see what such a simple, accessible material can become in the able hands of a talented designer. oh happy day!
