This fantastic and detailed sculpture by Alberto Parise and Giovanni Pasini is made entirely out of paper courtesy of Polyedra.

It is a combination of the collaboration and strong bond between Italian and Swiss designers. It is a promotional piece for an upcoming collaborative exhibition — Italian Design is Coming Home — featuring 22 of the best Swiss and Italian designers. The resulting works, which are currently in production, will be exhibited in Zurich and Milan in 2011 published in a catalog by Actar distributed across Italy, Switzerland and Europe.
