Our proposal for the two Thor Heyerdahl monuments in Larvik was weighed and found to light (or maybe to heavy in the case of paperboat intended for the pier).
Three 6-8 metre high Moai statues made of gold metallic Alucobond facets on an aluminium skeleton were to be placed at the new higway off-ramp at Bommestad, and a huge paper boat of silvermetallic Alucobond was proposed for the pier.

A new logo design for a new customer! This time the logo is for Napp Design, a product design company with a focus on packaging and the norwegian seafood business. The logo is a closed font with lots of space for texture. It is designed to be an interactive logo so that the designers at Napp can play with textures and colours.

Papp has been selected as one of the few projects to go on tour on the highschools of Telemark as a part of Kulturskatten, a govermentfunded cultural education program for school children. Some 6500 students will meet Papp and see our lecture on designer toys through the next autumn, winter and spring semesters!
We’re therefore filling up this monster bulletproof(ish) Pelicase with three Papp 1.0 robots, a bundle of beautiful Papp skins, a Macbbok with a funky Keynote presentation and loads of batteries!
