Handcrafted Paper Art with Better Weather
21st September 23 - By Morten Kaaber,General NewsArtist PortraitsPeople
Founded in Copenhagen in 2020, Better Weather produces unique-state pieces: furniture, interiors and objects for life. The studio is grounded in sustainability – reincarnating and barely taming our planetary debris – each piece is started with a desire to work with materials sourced from factory bi-products or industrial and urban waste. The studio works purely with commercial scalable materials, sourced from post-production materials.
Fused in the collaboration of Anne Werner and Kasper Lynge – with past lives in fashion, surface design, printmaking and contemporary art – Better Weather’s interdisciplinary practice navigates an abiding investigation of form and an urban social/cultural context that demands more from design than anonymity, passivity, and the nervous echoes of the modern.
We work purely with materials that are to be discarded. We apply both post-consume and post-production waste in our works.
New Compositions for Paper Collective
Based on the deconstruction and upcycling of discontinued or discarded Paper Collective art prints, Better Weather creates sculptural paper collages with depth and flow that captivates the viewer.
Constructed by hand, the collection references Japanese paper art, mid-century modernism while maintaining something umistakably "Better-Weather"-esque.
Each artwork is unique, signed by Better Weather and carefully framed with museum glass. 40x50 cm.

We seek to transform this waste of low status material into design objects.
