Paper Wow!

Sculptures, haute couture, furniture, progressive art … you can do amazing things out of paper. The premium papers in the Multicopy family are the ones to go for in any office paper-related mission. They will give you the great look and feel, quality and runnability that you hope for and help you meet green targets. But we are aware that cut size Multicopy is not the perfect fit for every occasion – for one it doesn’t quite make the grade in the world of art, fashion and design.

Stora Enso however, is a major player in renewable materials deriving from the forest/pulp and paper. A collaboration with Swedish kick-ass designer Bea Szenfeld some years back, where she designed haute couture creations (haute papier) from Stora Enso paper, is one amazing example of the ”paper wow” that we would like to share with you here.
