for ‘invia/ricevi,’ a workshop held at the headquarters of studio fud factory during the 2014 milan design week, 13 italian designers were invited to participate. the purpose of the gathering was to create objects that will hold documents, letters, and miscellaneous sheets together. amongst the creative entities, sopa design studio has developed ‘paolino’ in response to the brief. for the product, thin slits located perpendicular to the short edges of the filleted rectangular form have been laser cut out of two overlapping steel plates. these incisions provide stability for a slim paperweight that must be placed horizontally between them. in profile, this is used to indicate the progress made throughout the day and the passage of time as its bars move up and down in relation to the amount material it holds.
