Daniele Papuli is an Italian artist. After studying Sculpture at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, he settled in Milan, where he still works today. In his works, he uses handmade paper, selected for its color and weight. He describes himself as a sculptor that is in a constant dialogue with materials, places and space.

Delicacy of endurance

Panta Rei is an art installation created from more than 11,000 sheets of paper. Daniele Papuli's work alludes to the fact that all resilient and fluid structures are built from the sensitivity and subtlety of their elements. Beatrice Rossetti is the curator of the project presented at Milan Design Week.

An artistic look at furniture

Two pieces of furniture were used to create this installation. The first one is an armchair with an organic shape. Mimicking the sea and sky, the object interacts with the space and the artwork to create a unique sensory experience. The second piece is a modular sofa. The structure of the furniture can be personalized, so it easily adapts to the space. In this case, the artwork mimics a sofa with a fusion resembling flower petals.
