Inspired by the classic animal trophies I set out to find a timeless design you love to look at every day. The complex yet simple polygon structure reflects the modern design-approach. The Papertrophy animals feature a minimalistic cubic design. It represents simplicity while offering an astonishing look through shadows and light on the trophies. Their bright and vibrant colors create depth and radiate an extravagant elegance.
I designed five stand up figures and five wall hanging trophies.
Hundreds of polygons fit perfectly inside each other and build a sturdy construction using nothing more then paper and glue. Design is a very important factor for everything I do. I studied every single polygon, cut line and flap. My goal was not only to perfect the look but also to ensure that building it will be straightforward and as easy as possible. In the end I was able to set up every single Papertrophy elegant, yet easy to build.
Papertrophies are designed in Berlin, Germany, machine-cut and pre-fold from high quality eco-friendly paper for precision and quality by local printers.
Every papercraft is checked manually to ensure that only perfectly cut and pre-folded models receive the official Papertrophy seal.
