‘wood papillon’ by vinyluse is a collection handmade bow ties, crafted in italy with recycled wooden materials. using abandoned floors, disused chairs, and furniture as each bow tie’s medium, the waste is transformed into a valuable item through carpentry craft. the nine wearable pieces that are part of the series each take the name of a different renowned artist from history, and incorporate aesthetic elements from their style, and notable characteristics identifiable to them into each design. the ‘dali’, for example, is mustache-shaped in homage to the master’s trademark facial hair, while ‘matisse’s’ geometric voids reference the celebrated frenchman’s cut-out art.
