Paper Passage Installation
In cooperation with a young Croatian designer Ana Penić, Mondi and Europapier created an impressive paper installation “Paper Passage” as part of the Zagreb Design Week. The large scale installation is fully made of paper IQ PRINT 190gsm – exclusively available at Europapier.
White strips of paper, cut in various lengths, hang from the Hall V ceiling, creating a pathway the visitors must pass to enter the exhibition area. The installation was a great talking point and was received by amazement and wonder by viewers. The unique characteristics of paper as a material, are perfectly showcased in large scale installations like the “Paper Passage”.
