Let there be light

With inspiration from the furniture fair in Milan, Japanese origami and a deep-rooted respect for the environment, Swedish art director and designer Olof Nauclér has created a series of lamps made out of paperboard and LED lamps. Not only does the paperboard make the Urbanero lamps lighter in weight, but since it’s a local resource from Iggesund it also means fewer emissions from transportation.

“The LED lamps need a minimum of electricity and have an extremely long durability,” Nauclér says. “And if someone, for whatever reason, wants to discard the lamp, the paperboard can be composted.”

The making of Invercote

See how the leading paperboard brand Invercote is produced at the Iggesund Mill in Sweden. Invercote is a solid bleached board extremely well suited for packaging where demands on both print reproduction and structural design are very high.

Through its consistently high performance in printing and packing lines, it adds value to both carton makers and commercial printers when it comes to optimising their production economy. And it adds value to brand owners making their packaging stand out on the shelf.

Inspire 57 contains stories from the US and examples of what our customers have produced using Invercote as well as visits to Pittsburgh, Chicago and Cincinnati. We have looked at the cosmetics industry and its increasing diversity to include products for women of color, genderless beauty as well as the first American halal-certified brand.

For the cover, we have played a bit with the European conception that in the US everything is always seen as bigger and better and created a cover with an extra page that folds out to give space to the whole continent. It is printed in a four colour offset with a glossy protection varnish on the foil embossed details on Invercote Creato 240 g/m².
