NINN APOULADAKI – Paper Artists & More

 Exciting news! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are so thrilled to share with you the first creation among 15 others that we started to work on recently. @geraldpassedat, the famous 3 starts French chef, contacted us about a month ago. He asked us to work on a series of table centerpieces for his restaurant Le Petit Nice Passedat in Marseille. He explained to us his inspirations, and the idea to work on imaginary abyssal creatures popped up in my mind. Guillaume had the brilliant idea to cover them with glass, and we had the chance to meet a glassblower who blows only crystal. Can't wait to share more of the process with you all, because it is truly a magical experience for both of us! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ By the way, the coolest thing happened when we brought our prototype to the chef, a man came to join us and guess who it was: Kevin Spacey! He took a picture of our creation and told me " very beautiful."! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are more than excited to work with one of the most exceptional chefs in the world!Thank you to you Gerald and @sebastien_tantot_moitoices for your enthousiasm! . . . . . #ninnapouladaki #geraldpassedat #lepetitnicepassedat #marseille #artdelatable #3starschef #frenchcuisine #paperartist #paperart #art #abyss #abyssalcreatures #anemone #urchin #corals #papercreature #glassblower #crystal #interiordesign #r3starsestaurant #hautecuisine #france #madeinfrance
 We found a bunch of antique dismantled clocks in a yard sale recently. It was all in a box, a real mess! Guillaume and I don’t wear watches. I think if I had one I would check the time too much. I think Guillaume is waiting for the perfect watch. I prefer those antique clocks that don’t work anymore! And especially that giant one that Guillaume crafted out of paper⏱ . . . . #ninnapouladaki #paperpoetry #paperart #paperartist #paperclock #time #slow #studio #studiolife #antiques #antiqueclocks #brocante #yardsale
 Almost done with the production of hundreds of paper lanterns for @anthropologie & @shopterrain!  We have a mountain of them at the studio, and I can say that we like it a lot! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Next fall, you will find them in many @anthropologie and @shopterrain stores across America. The team we are in contact with is just so lovely, and the experience is glorious! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We've been working with retailers for 3 full years before we committed ourselves to paper art, but every now and then, we still accept to be represented by some beautiful stores. When @shopterrain contacted us with such excitement about our paper lanterns, we couldn't refuse! It just made sense! As a brand, we've been working with amazing people around the world, but only a few of them really turned that experience into something very fulfilling and humanly inspiring. @shopterrain @urbanoutfitters, @anthropolgie, is one (or 3) of them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are very grateful for that opportunity to spread our dreamlike creations across the Atlantic ocean!  If you want to see a little more about our brand, you can go to our website, shop section and you'll see our masks, stationery, and many other things! ❤️ Have a lovely day . . . . . #ninnapouladaki #paperlanterns #anthropologie #shopterrain #terrain #urbanoutfitters #retailers #retailing #paperart #paperlover #woodland #tales #dreamlike #woodlandpaperlanterns #forest #magic #wild #sustainable #eco #slowliving #america #americandream #forestscene #artist #interiordesign #decoration #interior #indoor #homegood
 How are you today, guys? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I woke up at 5.30 am this morning, because of a mosquito... Well, I took the opportunity to start working earlier, and feel less pressure during the day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I always observed that starting my day at an early hour gives me more space to breathe and so being able to feel relaxed throughout the day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The best for me is to wake up with a 15 minutes meditation, 15 minutes yoga. Then the day is always great after that. I have to remind myself to do it more often as I tend to grab more minutes of sleep instead of having this excellent morning routine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I woke up, Guillaume wasn't there. He's not an early bird, like at all! So I knew baby Uma probably called him during the night, and so he ended up sleeping in her room. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He's such a wonderful father to our daughter, he's ending a lot of his nights lately, sleeping half his body on Uma's bed (which is on the ground) and the other half, on the ground! He's a devoted man to our family, and we are fortunate to have him into our lives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We have another busy day at the studio, so I must go! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wishing you a beautiful day. . . . . . #ninnapouladaki #studio #studiolife #family #fatheranddaughter #paperflowers #paperflower #paperart #paperartist #paperlover #paperskill #nature #mothernature #mindfulart #mindful #art #papercutting #setdesigner #eventdesign #interiordesign #interiordecoration #frame #woodenframe
 Remember our paper Hibiscus we were crafting at the studio some weeks ago? Here they are! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We've been asked by @clarinsfr and @coevaprod to reproduce this beauty of nature in paper. I never tried it before, and it made me realize, while observing this flower carefully, that once more, nature hides the most beautiful treasures of all. Hibiscus stamens are fascinating, if you haven't looked at it thoroughly yet, do it, you'll be blown away! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I chose to craft them in a Japanese paper that is a little transparent and stained them with pure pigments of pastels. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have a great day! . . . . . #ninnapouladaki #paperpoetry #hibiscus #paperhibiscus #clarins #setdesign #photoshoot #paperflowers #paperflower #paperart #paperartist #paperlover #paperskill #nature #mothernature #mindfulart #mindful #art #papercutting #setdesigner #eventdesign #interiordesign #interiordecoration
