Holger Hoffman took a contemporary approach in redefining the classic animal trophies through papercraft art. The Papertrophy animals feature a complex yet simple polygon structure that reflects simplicity. The fun colours and geometrical structure adds visual interest and creates intricate plays of light and shadow. The collection includes two stand up figures and five wall hanging Trophies. Papertrophy was recently launched through an Indiegogo campaign that will close on February 20. See more information on how to contribute and get your own Papertrophy!
With Papertrophy you have the option of choosing from over 80 colour options per trophy, making it extremely easy to express your creativity. The structure features hundreds of polygons that fit inside each other perfectly to create an extremely sturdy construction. The paper used is at least 220g/m², handpicked from German paper manufacturers. Moreover all papers are eco-friendly and carry the FSC seal.
Design is a very important factor for everything I do. I studied every single polygon, cut line and flap. My goal was not only to perfect the look but also to ensure that building it will be straightforward and as easy as possible. In the end I was able to set up every single Papertrophy elegant, yet easy to build.

The assembly process is as straightforward as it can be. The only element needed is regular paper glue. Everything is taken care of prior to delivery, with the final product pre-cut and pre-creased folding patterns. Each piece is numbered to make the process even easier. Simply start glueing and soon you will start seeing a 3 dimensional piece appear in front of your eyes.
I didn‘t just want to send out sheets of paper.

Papertrophys are designed in Berlin, Germany, machine-cut and pre-fold from high quality eco-friendly paper for precision and quality by local printers. Every paper craft is checked manually to ensure that only perfectly cut and pre-folded models receive the official Papertrophy seal.
