Francoise Schmölz discovered pop-up paper while studying set design, and in a spectacular leap into a paper world she created a pop-up printing house – one of the few in the world and the only one in Greece.
This is where you will always find her: bent over her favourite material, designing, carving, cutting, folding, redesigning, printing and putting together anything you can imagine. Or rather, more than anyone could ever imagine. 3D constructions, cards, small objects, all delicate and feather-light, they jump out like magical images in the astonishing ways Francoise has thought up.
These airy constructions are my favourite gifts when I am travelling. For they have a practical side, too…
