Nick Andersen and Julie Ho turn spaces into parties. Walking into a room where they’ve worked their shimmery magic is to enter a shining, sparkly world of your tween self’s wildest dreams.
Since 2008, the duo has been creating grand-scale installations and fluttering party objects out of every everyday materials like tissue paper, cardboard, and silk for the likes of Beyoncé, MoMA, the New York Times, Martin Margiela, and Opening Ceremony. Now, the design studio is bringing the party full circle with its first collection of invitations and cards.
Spotlight: CONFETTISYSTEM for Paperless Post is made up of just ten invitations and two greeting cards featuring the design studio’s signature piñatas, colorful tassels, and mylar fringe. Much like Andersen and Ho’s immersive party environments, the design brings an extra pop to showers, bachelorette parties, and any other celebration involving a bit of bubbly.
With our Spotlight series, we’re creating thoughtfully curated and highly edited collaborations with contemporary designers that might seem like unlikely stationers. Each partner is asked to design a collection that embodies their signature aesthetic in just a handful of invitations as an exploration of how discrete visual concepts can be translated into stationery. Previous partners include PATTERNITY and Dusen Dusen.
Spotlight: CONFETTISYSTEM for Paperless Post is available online and on paper at paperlesspost.com.
