Yesterday marked the opening of this year's Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair, and what better way to kick off the event than with the breathtaking pavilion created by Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh and Dutch illustrator Kustaa Saksi Created out of 1,120 stacks of paper -- a total of 11,000 individual sheets connected at 44,000 points -- "Hello! Anatomy of Communication" spans an area of 200 square meters. The paper acts as a canvas for the illustrative artist, reflected by the mirrored tabletops that rest below the suspended structure. As if the designers thought there wasn’t enough paper used in the construction, the reflective tabletops are also balanced upon stacks of paper. "Hello! Anatomy of Communication" will be on view during the fair, which runs until February 9 as a part of Stockholm Design Week.
