Product Description

The Architect's Blueprint Paperweight is a bit of three-dimensional wit for the desktop, and a practical object for organizing and securing paperwork. The clever style of designer Tibor Kalman is evident in this paperweight, made of rigid silk-screened vinyl featuring a replica of an architectural drawing, hand-crumpled, and wrapped around a steel weight.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Tibor Kalman (1949-1999) founded the legendary, multidisciplinary design firm M&Co in 1979. In collaboration with his wife Maira, the conceptually progressive firm initially created graphics, magazines and film titles, and books. Following the release of a record album cover for the rock band Talking Heads, M&Co gained major attention for "pushing the envelope" on conventions of design and typography, and went on to become a major influence on emerging designers.
