Paperform is a business set up by self-taught Paper Engineer Benja Harney from Sydney, Australia ( Benja’s work is dedicated to creating high-end pop-up books and paper construction for a variety of different projects, including advertising, magazine illustration, fashion, packaging and invitations. Her work is gorgeous and shows what amazing things can be created with paper, I love anything quirky and cool and have a big interest in package design, so the work from Paperform really caught my eye! Benja has made paper creations for a number of different Australian editorials, including Women’s Health Magazine, House & Garden, Inside Out and Wish Magazine. One of the main pieces of work which really stands out to me is the Harpers Bazaar Pop-Up Book which was a one-off, bespoke creation for Harpers Bazaar Australia, used in a promotional capacity…it really is rather awesome!

More recently, Benja created a sculpture project for Incu in Australia in celebration of  the store stocking Topshop as their latest ‘Presents’ project which opened on Tuesday night. The whole sculpture project by Benja has a distinct British feel and they are all dotted around the store! One of the sculptures for the store:

  1. gee… wow…
    I’m glad you love my work – paper is a complete obsession for me to be honest. I find such pleasure in what I do.
    It’s wonderful that other people find a bit of joy in it too.

    Yeah, I really like your work…takes a lot of talent to do what you do, I especially love the pop-up book you did for Harpers Bazaar, so cool!
