Greyshift transforms paper off-cuts from our pop-up book, The Dining Room, into a moveable viewing device that expands from two to three dimensions across the black and white spectrum—from the flat, negative spaces of single planes of paper into a passageway defined by the curious betweens.

Tic-Tac-Toe made with XO out of 100% offcuts

No doubt, we’ve got designer OCD when it comes to all the details, but we’re really very scrappy over here at STUDIOOSS. We love & hoard our offcuts & end-pieces, and we sort & save everything for future use.

That’s why it was a real treat to produce our first zero waste product, our XO Tic-Tac-Toe coaster set. All parts of this set come from offcuts from our OSS Edition 001 The Dining Room pop-up book & our Edition 002 Linens. The playing board is from leftover chipboard used to make the book’s slipcase. The XO coasters are made using end-pieces and offcuts from our linens, and the caddy is made from a mix of our book’s paper offcuts and its slipcase scraps.

offcuts = best cuts
