French designer Inga Sempre’s work incorporates textures and pleats into the every day.
Although stunning and sculptural in their design, each of Inga’s pieces have a simple precedent, like these well designed pleated paper lights, these beautiful fringed shelves below, and we’ve all seen accordion style storage doors before haven’t we? Inga makes these practical objects look oh-so chic.
