Ulrike Maeder

Fascinated by paper and light, Ulrike Maeder’s material of preference is cellulose, from which she crafts lamps, bowls and other objects featuring rough surface textures and inimitable haptics. Her creations in various chromatic nuances ranging from white to gray are characterized by a remarkable stability and long useful lifetimes thanks to vacuum manufacturing. Many of them lend themselves to diverse uses. The four-legged Papka objects made of hemp and flax cellulose, for example, can be used both as an aesthetically appealing designer object and a repository. They are manufactured by this product designer in limited editions in her studio in Halle. Her eco-friendly small-series objects and one-of-a-kind pieces compellingly bridge the gap between design and the artistic crafts. The prices range from 70 to 2,000 euros.
