The technique behind laminated boards serve as the point of departure for Iwan Pol, who desires a simpler way to construct three-dimensional shapes from flat surfaces. By substituting melamine for a thicker and stronger paper, he developed an ‘overlay’ technique which connects the pieces of MDF together. Thanks to the flexibility of its top layer, the constructions can be folded into spatial objects. Pol’s deftly positioned cut-outs offer a multitude of folding options, flexibly bending in lively patterns. And for an added bonus: because of their foldable nature, the objects can be flat-packed for transportation and assembled upon arrival.
