Manta Motion Studies for James Cropper White Paper Project 2015

8 Manchester based designers were asked to develop designs using specially selected papers. Each piece could only use a single sheet of A1 heavyweight paper.

I opted to create a series of sculptures mimicking the movement of a Manta Ray.

The chair frames are Bauhaus 'style' replicas that had lost their cushions.
