people too: paper miniatures

Published October 6, 2012 by Origami Architecture

celebrity and historical figures find a second life in these paper miniatures by people too,
the collaborative efforts of russian designers alexei lyapunov and lena ehrlich.

using a range of knives, scissors, tweezers, and other tools on wire and a combination
of construction and specialty papers, the team creates not only miniature furniture and figures
but also entire sets for the pieces. their ‘star’ series represents famous musicians, from michael jackson
to queen to elton john; ‘tsar peter and tsarevitch alexey’ depicts the happier early days of the famous russian rulers;
and their ‘office’ and ‘factory’ series recreate scenes from the everyday working world.
