Amazing hand-made paper vessels
Symbio Boats, a collection of delicate artworks created from laser-cut paper by Ibbini Studio, develops at the nexus of machine, science, and personal interaction. Since 2017, Julia Ibbini, an artist, and Stephane Noyer, a software engineer, have worked together in Abu Dabi to produce extraordinarily intricate paintings. Their exacting works blend and juxtapose machine forms, designs, and procedures with the imperfections and natural qualities of human hand-made techniques.
In terms of the shape and feel of the finished form, “this collection moves between conflicting yet complementing, different but linked themes,” the designers write. By adding conceptual structural modifications, intricacy, and detail made possible by computers and mathematical modelling, we hoped to examine the idea of a conventional vessel (usually supposed to be utilitarian and basic).
Every vessel is made out of a series of hand-drawn, natural patterns that are then fine-tuned and organized in a geometric design utilizing mathematics and digital production tools to create the final form. The last phase involves carefully assembling every vessel by manually bonding the laser-cut tissue layers together. The parts are then created using a laser slicing equipment. The designers contend that “it is the imperfections which come with the human hand that generate the lovely final result” in spite of how time-consuming this stage of the procedure is.

Ibbini Studio, situated in Abu Dabi, makes elaborate artworks out of laser-cut paper using designs drawn from algorithms.
They intended to investigate and intensify “the idea of a conventional vessel,” which is typically straightforward and functional, in this collection, Symbio Boats.
The meticulous detail in the finished sculptures is astounding!
