‘paper cut razor’ is a project that uses an everyday mishap as the influence for a seemingly mundane task. folded into existence by nadeem haidary, the design takes the outrageous idea of accidentally slicing the surface of the skin and transforms it into a functional device. the result is a razor constructed entirely out of a single sheet of water-resistant paper that can be recycled after use. from haidary’s perspective, ‘it’s a fictional product that playfully challenges two notions: that paper cuts are inherently evil, and that current disposable razors are truly disposable.’
