transFORMATE turns your yesterday’s papers into today’s cutting edge. Luzia M. Gossmann collects, assorts, cuts, folds, interweaves old newspapers and gives them new identities as bags, cases, caskets up to carpets and screens. transFORMATE is based on the traditional artisanry of weaving. Multiply folded paper strips are the thread. The printed text literally gets woven into texture. A filmy, matt sealing finish provides a moisture repellent, tearproof and abrasion-resistant surface. Although light and fragile in appearance, all transFORMATEs are sturdy, durable artifacts for daily use. transFORMATE is not only functionally well-thought-out, but also captivating with its clear, elegant form and its distinctive appearance. All transFORMATEs are completely made by hand in Germany. Each transFORMAT is thoroughly and individually manufactured and is thus unique.
