NYIGF Studio Preview: Little Paper Planes
Little Paper Planes debuts Uniforma, their first collection of products designed in-house in partnership with US craftspeople. LPP is known for offering art prints and ephemera from emerging artists since 2004. The Uniforma Collection highlights the intersection of art and design by creating elegant functional objects with an emphasis on craftsmanship, collaboration and local manufacturing.
As an artist run business, LPP wants to offer objects they feel a kinship with, things they want to wear and use every day. These essentials make up a "uniform." Uniforma's first collection is an art pouch, camera strap and wallet for the artist in everyone.
Uniforma is an everyday uniform, they are the things designed to be worn, carried, and used. Uniforma is curious, stylish, and simple. They value form paired with function, design as collaboration, and supporting small and local artists.
Little Paper Plane's work will be on view at the JOIN booth at the NYIGF. Find JOIN next to the American Design Club at the Jacob K. Javits Center, Lobby Level 2, 9:00 am - 6:00 pm August 19 - 21; 2:00 - 6:00 pm August 22.
