Paper in Three Dimensions
Since 2006, the designers behind Paperlux in Hamburg have been leading the invitation-design industry with their three-dimensional approach to visual identities. Theirs is an off-the-paper practice, weaving elements of wood, sandstone, leather, and textiles into each invitation as the commission requires. Craftsmanship is at the heart of their design concept, but they privilege context as key over quantity or quality: Certain materials might be flashy and come at a high price, but they might not be necessary to finish off a set. Design is a holistic experience, and invitations are no different.
Paperlux is one of the many design leaders featured in You’re Invited!, our compendium chronicling the blooming industry of invitation design.
