Willard Wigan

Speaking of pins, I’m sure most of you have already heard of British artist Willard Wigan, creator of the world’s smallest sculptures. He uses a tiny surgical blade to carve microscopic figures out of gold, and fragments of grains of sand which are then mounted on pinheads. To paint his creations, he uses a hair plucked from a dead fly.

Wigan says:

The stillness of it is very important — you have to control the whole nervous system, you have to work between the heartbeat — the pulse of your finger can destroy the work.

I instantly fell in love with Aurel Schmidt’s work the moment I saw it and never recovered. Her work is just stunning.

‘ This chair named Folder is an all around chair for the domestic market as well as for public spaces. The basic idea is the impression of paper-origami. Therefore it needs a rigid material but with a mat-aspect of white paper. It consists of a polypropylene sheet which is cut, scored and folded into a chair. It holds by means of snapping clips which are invisible and form the rigid structure of the chair. It comes assembled in a box. ‘ Designed by Stefan Schöning for Polyline.
