HomeDesignFocus on: Zupagrafika Paper Cut-Out Sculptures Inspired by Brutalist London Architecture In their latest paper-cut collection, Brutal London, Hispano-Polish creative design studio Zupagrafika, take us on a paper cut-out tour of the brutalist architecture of London from 1960s-1970s. Featuring buildings scattered around the districts of Camden, Southwark and Tower Hamlet, this series is a continuation of their open paper block collection, in which they aim to capture and catalogue modernist architecture at risk of extinction. Made from 100% recycled paper and cardboard, these eco-friendly collections also include a short technical note on the architects, year of construction and exact location of each building, as well as demolition plan if applicable. We spoke to David Navarro & Martyna Sobecka, the duo behind Zupagrafika about their work: The Plus: What is the story behind the founding of Zupagrafika? David Navarro & Martyna Sobecka: The studio was founded by David Navarro out of his passion for the Polish Poster School. Zupagrafika’s realisations stem from conceptual simplicity, purity of form and content coherence. TP: Do you have any advice for designers who might want to start their own studios? DN & MS: Be consequent in what you do and always true to yourselves. TP: Will you be further developing your paper cut-out work? DN&MS: We are always working on various projects at a time; both commissions and self initiated projects. There is a new paper cut-out collection to come soon. The complete collection can be ordered from the Zupagrafika online shop, Zupamarket.
