Paper Factor

Paper Factor was created from the exceptional qualities of a solid surface material made from a new compound of micro-paper: an innovative evolution of papier-mâché, scientifically tested and developed in collaboration with the University of Salento. Paper Factor is strong, durable, and incredibly light. Available in various formats and combinations — from large panels to small modules that can be assembled like a mosaic — it is ideal for re-covering surfaces both vertical and horizontal: ceilings, walls, as well as furniture. All products are hand-made and finished with techniques usually employed on wood, metal, plastic and stone, processes that previously could not be used on papier-mâché. These allow for the most optimal expression of the unique flexibility and malleability of this innovative material, so that it can be modelled in many 2D or 3D shapes, geometries, patterns, and sizes. The company was founded by the architect Riccardo Cavaciocchi, with offices in Lecce and in New York, in order to create new approaches, as well as to fill gaps in the markets of contemporary architecture, interior design, and the arts. Paper Factor also invites diverse professionals to interact and creatively participate in the experimentation process.
