Those were two of the main trends at Salone del Mobile this year, where some pieces were as flexible as origami shapes and others as fragile-looking as paper dolls. A host of other designs were fashioned from recyclable and sustainable materials. There were paper lamps courtesy of three Swedish companies — Sodra, a forestry group; Claesson Koivisto Rune, an architectural practice, and the lamp maker Wastberg — and a paper overnight bag commissioned by Wallpaper magazine and created by the Munich-based designers Saskia and Stefan Diez. The bag was made from Tyvek, a type of synthetic paper that is waterproof, tearproof and recyclable.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
