                        “ From Haute-Couture to Haute-Cartonnage ”

In a world in which innovative developments follow each other at breakneck speed and social contacts take more and more place online, the need for personal experience is increasing.

After a long career in the world of Parisian haute couture, Paul devoted himself a few years ago to designing and manufacturing special art from cardboard.

Art that certainly does not evoke an association with cardboard at first impression, but which nevertheless has the unique properties of this material.

Characteristics that are also expressed from his inspiration, mission and vision to create objects with attention to the world that are "honest" and contribute to a sustainable world

His love for art and history led him to "haute-cartonnage", art that not only has appearance, provides functionality, but above all is enriched with "witty details" that give an idiosyncratic contribution to the art.

The masculinity of cardboard is given a very feminine interpretation, in which a “dash of elegance” radiates from the art.

It is a challenge for Paul to take objects out of an art-historical context and then to give them his own interpretation, whether classical or modern.

Have we been able to inspire you to jointly reflect on the beauty of art and to explore the possibilities in which its "haute-cartonnage" finds its way within
