Story of the Month
Into
the Fold

We are renowned for our expertise in the creation, sourcing, and supply of materials, but also for our understanding of their potential application and transformation. The transformation of a material can be as simple or as complicated as our creative desire, and this month we focus on a very simple, yet elegant transformation, the basic fold. Working with a few materials in our library that can easily be hand folded, we tried some simple folds to illustrate how their aspect changed! 
MAGIC MIRROR TPU
Our iconic Magic Mirror TPU is a thicker transparent variant of Magic Mirror, composed of the polyester film on a TPU support. Here, the folds, layers and dark and light backgrounds emphasise that the shifting colours and the transmitted colors are different from the reflective colors.

LENTICULAIRE PC MOIRÉ
Lenticulaire PC Moire has to be seen to be believed, the lenticular surface gives the impression of depth and, once folded, belies its two-dimensionality giving the impression of a solid object. Here, in the clear color it resembles a block of sculpted ice.

CRUMPLED
Crumpled has a cracked metallic surface, like a beautifully aged leather. When folded it becomes fuller, and takes on the appearance of upholstered furniture. It is much less fragile than it looks and can be sewn easily through the fold lines to create upholstered objects.

BILLY MÉTALLISÉ
Our Billy Métallisé in 100% polyester comes in 21 different metallic colors. When folded its mirrored surface is multiplied and its color is reflected in multiple directions on the surfaces around it, creating a jewel-like glow.

PVC MIRROR
Our lightweight PVC Mirror has a clean surface that can be stretched on a frame easily to create a beautiful mirror. When creased and folded it undulates without support, giving crisp, clear images.

HOLO-SPARKLE ADHESIVE
Holo-Sparkle Adhesive is a shimmering holographic glitter adhesive vinyl with a paper backing. We left the paper backing on it before folding to give it structure, and a new profundity to its sparkling surface. Like a futuristic pointillist painting, we’re sure you’ll agree that the facetted result is fascinating!
