Stumbled across the work of Icelandic designer, Jón Björnsson, and really enjoyed his portfolio. Above are Björnsson's 'Table Rack', a magazine holder/side table combo and 'Flower Eruption', a series of vases he made by casting volcanic sand in paper molds. Mixed with resin, the sand dries and the paper is torn away - leaving a simple and crisp geometric form. He has some other nice projects made from folded paper (a chair and lights) that are worth checking out.
