UK designer Richard Sweeney [2] took our breath away with these 3-dimensional sculptures made from the most ordinary of materials: plain old paper. The intricately folded forms are absolutely striking in their clean symmetry and the shadows cast by the curves and crevices. You can stare with jaw-dropped awe at most of his paper sculptures at his Flickr page [3]. Geometry has never looked so good…



Sweeney (just 22-years-old!) was recently recognized for his ingenuity with the New Designers DKNY Award [4]. Not sure these works are made from recycled paper, but there’s no reason they couldn’t be.
