We love all things paper. Especially paper sculptures that are made into relatable fun items that brings back wonderful memories. Self taught Australian paper engineer Benja Harney of studio Paperform specialises in making everything (really everything!) fun and super cool with paper for their commercial clients. We LOVE how Benja will refer to people visiting his website as Paper Nerds! Yes, here!

This paper set of a classic afternoon tea set encapsulates all the favourite things we love about the British tradition of an afternoon tea. Those cucumber sandwiches, that perforated serviette, those fine paper bone china and cute delicious slices of pastel cakes… YUM!
