mein was at London's Design Festival 2009 recently and was smitten by 'cloud walk' by designer Yu Jordy Fu. Her creation is a nine meter long horizontal white chandelier created from recycled paper for 100% design london.
Paper-cutting is a unique art form, which chinese women used as a graceful and intricate media to record their lives and adorn their homes. Yu Jordy Fu has used the ancient technique as means to break away from the two dimensional realm and create a dreamlike landscape. The chandelier can be purchased in sections and reinstalled.
Yu Jordy Fu is a London based designer who graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design with a first class degree in Spatial Design. She subsequently received a Master of Arts Degree in Architecture from the Royal College of Art London.
