them in accordance with humanitarian and environmentally sensitive principles. This ethical approach coupled with their technical knowledge of large scale cutting processes made them an ideal match for Arntzen. A year later in Novemember 2010, she was in San Francisco launching her first range.


Earlier this year, Arntzen widened her scope by taking on her first interior design project, a small coffee bar in Arnhem called Tape. Working with a very limited budget, she created a simple but effective scheme built around the owner’s desire for a space filled with eclectic vintage furniture. Lighting was of course key to the project, and two new pieces emerged from the process. The first was a custom wall fitting that used LED lights concealed behind a double layer of the bar’s retro wallpaper. By slicing vertical slits in the upper layer of paper and push- ing together the top and bottom ends until the paper buckled open, she created the impression that the wall was being distorted


by a ball of light from within. It is, in effect, the ultimate in soft-architecture. While the concept was too site specific to develop as a stand-alone piece, her second idea, a 360º fan of subtly coloured paper wings, seemed to have more potential as a mass production item. This piece, named Butterfly, formed part of the collection Arntzen took to this year’s Dutch Design Week event. Exhibited at Eindhoven’s Temporary Art Center alongside three artists working in porcelain (the similar properties of paper and porcelain making their teaming up “a good match”) she received very positive reaction which has spurred her on to further develop the Butterfly piece for market. Together with a commission to help create the interiors for a new Fashion&Design Hotel in the Fashion District of Arnhem, Arntzen’s 2012 looks set - on paper, at least - to be a very busy year. www.paulaarntzen.nl
