content an overview of contemporary paper projects by michael young, naoto fukasawa, martin margiela, nendo, raw-edges, inga sempé, shigeru ban, tokujin yoshioka… which range from furniture construction, architecture, art installations to fashion and jewelry, illustrating the diverse characteristic properties and potential applications of paper.

‘unfolded’ also provides information on modern paper technologies – such as its scientific uses, composites – and reveals manufacturing processes for intelligent, lightweight construction, while also recognizing more traditional paper practices such as japanese origami.
