Papier à êtres is a company founded by Sophie Mouton-Perrat and Frédéric Guibrunet. It specializes in creating incredible sculptures using a papier mache technique. Although this might not be anything new in the arts and crafts world, the two artists have put their own unique spin on their creations.

First of all, the Papier à êtres sculptures are large yet delicate, taking on the form of feminine females in big ballgowns. These bulbous skirts act as lanterns since inside is a softy glowing light. A fusion of art and technology, the sculptures have been displayed in such renowned locations as the Paris Opera House. Lighting the way for guests, the Papier à êtres sculptures fit perfectly in such venues.

It would be interesting to see their application in more modern settings as well.
