Designer of the NOMAD Backdrop & PaperForms Wall Tiles
"I am very proud of our PaperForms. They are a category shattering product. We were the first company to come up with this concept. The technology had been around for decades but the idea of using the material as a surface covering was really unique and beautiful. Taking trash and making it into something so desirable really summarises it. We were able to patent the product and it was included in the permanent collection of the Copper Hewitt National Design Museum, which is a real honour. I also like the emails we get and the calls from customers. They are so excited about it which is contagious." - Jaime Salm (on right)
Designer of the Dutch Design Chair
Tim Várdy has studied classical piano at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague (Netherlands) and was a regular visitor of the North Sea Jazz Festival. There he got the idea of a handy cardboard stool due to the fact that it had to be lightweight and fully printable for advertising. With the help of industrial designers he developed a cardboard chair. Then patented it internationally. That's how the FestivalChair (Dutch Design Chair) was born.
