As the nights draw in and a chill spikes the air, we all have to face facts here in the UK that winter is coming. And with it, colder weather, darker evenings and the end of bottomless Aperol Spritz, al fresco.
However, there's no need to despair, because paper artist Lamis Al Huraibi of Pratìc – a Rome-based creative studio with a love for all things paper-made has saved the day with this project for Ani Villas in Phuket.
Lamis explains: "The setting for this pop-up design, Ani Villas in Phuket, is the perfect destination getaway to celebrate a wedding anniversary with loved ones.
"The marvellous island and dramatic surroundings are brought to life in this pop-up invitation, which depicts a scene of love, joy and adventure. The concept presented has been expanded to include a set design showcasing the potential of paper craft."
Specialising in pop-up scenes, Pratìc blend art and design to achieve the most eye-catching results.
"In an age of mass production, it is easy to forget the joy and beauty of handmade objects. We get a feel for our creations by touching, marking and folding. While we are aided by some of the latest technology, we strongly believe in creating with passion while employing traditional techniques. Our love for timeless paper craftsmanship marks the starting point and is the basis of every project created by Pratìc."
Lamis, the lead creative behind Pratìc, is a nomadic artist born and raised in Aden, Yemen. She has lived in such diverse places as Cuba, the UK - where she studied art and design - Saudi Arabia, and most recently Italy where she pursued a degree in Product Design at IED Rome.
