For this year's 3 Days of Design festival, Paper Collective and Wendelbo presented a collaborative exhibition at the Danish furniture brands new showroom in the heart of Copenhagen. This exhibition provided a platform to showcase the talents of both emerging and established designers working across both brand catalogues and between furniture and art.⁠

Each artwork was delicately screen-printed onto a selection of dead-stock fabrics from the Wendelbo collection. Ten artworks were presented in total from Jonas Wagell, Note Design Studio and Skogstad & Wærnes. Paper Collective curated the exhibition to align with the tones and textures of the Wendelbo collection - while some works were inspired by the designers work for the furniture brand, others responded to the environment in which they were presented.

Swedish architect and designer Jonas Wagell presented two works that continue his best-selling Sketchbook Abstracts collection for Paper Collective. For the exhibition, Wagell worked on a more tonal grouping of artworks, taking cues from the colours of the Wendelbo showroom.

Long time Paper Collective collaborators Note Design Studio presented two sets of diptych artworks titled Ovata - the same name as their seating collection for Wendelbo. Referencing the waxy, thick leaves of the jade plant, the screen-printed works featured delicate line work in a shade of dusty blue.

A new design duo to both the Paper Collective and Wendelbo catalogue's, Norwegian studio Skogstad & Wærnes produced four artworks inspired by their sketching throughout the design process, and new Duvet lounge chair for Wendelbo. While organic forms referenced the chairs soft cushioning, artworks with slinking lines referenced the unique frame of the chairs design.

From these site-specific artworks created in collaboration with Wendelbo, Paper Collective have produced three distinct collections of artworks that share the same inspiration and starting point. All art print collections are now available from our website and through retailers.
