The simplicity and purity of the material constantly question contemporary popular elements. In an era of over-design and information overload, it seems to call out to me, urging a return to essence, exploring the existential value between things. Design's purpose is not just innovation in form but achieving resonance with the soul, touching delicate and genuine emotions.

The exploration of paper has become a reflection on life and the meaning of existence for me. Paper, an item overlooked in daily life, how can it allow design to transcend visuals and reach the depths of the soul? This is a challenge for designers and also a process of seeking my answers.

Gmund Bio Cycle

  1. Cycle - Kreislauf (Circular)
    Sourced from discarded paper products and books, undergoes grinding, filtering, and reprocessing into paper fibers, unlike the typical gray color seen in recycled paper, it's an ivory white with a subtle yellow hue.
  2. Chlorophyll - Blattgrün (Leaf Green)
    Derived from the boundless Bavarian grasslands, where lush grasses are harvested, dried, and then used to dye the paper with their own chlorophyll, creating a natural grass green color. With a faint grassy scent near the nose, "Chlorophyll - Blattgrün" becomes the most iconic one in the "Bio Cycle" series.
  3. Wheat - Stroh (Wheat)
    Up to 50% of wheat fibers replace wood pulp, containing 5% straw from Bavarian fields, the irregular lengths of straw sprinkled on the paper surface provide a natural and gentle feel through touch.
  4. Cannabis - Hanf (Hemp)
    Derived from hemp extensively grown in Europe, utilizing hemp's rough and tough fibers to enhance the paper's stiffness, the slightly light beige hue with fibrous specks on the surface suits natural or earthy color themes.
  5. Rag - Baumwolle (Cotton) Recycled and carded cotton from the garment industry combined with wood pulp, the surface has a soft and comfortable feel characteristic of cotton, and with the long fiber properties of cotton, it's suitable for embossing processes like hot stamping and debossing.

The growth cycle of these plants is very short, taking only about 1 year for harvesting compared to the 7-8 years required for trees. By utilizing plant fibers with shorter growth cycles to replace long-term tree forestry, it successfully reduces the use of trees by about 50%.

The paper's single side has been smoothed, resulting in a slightly better color effect compared to uncoated paper, and also reducing dust issues. The visual effect mainly comes from the natural integration of plant fibers into the surface, simultaneously enhancing the paper's natural degradation efficiency, making it one of the representative products of cultural and ecological balance.


  1. サイクル - Kreislauf (循環) 再生するための原料は、廃棄された紙製品や書籍から来ています。紙の繊維は、粉砕とろ過を経て再処理され、典型的なリサイクル紙の灰色とは異なり、わずかに黄色みがかった象牙色に仕上げられています。
  2. クロロフィル - Blattgrün (葉緑素) これは、広大なバイエルンの大草原で収穫された豊かな草を乾燥し、その草の葉緑素を使用して紙を着色するものです。鼻の近くでふんわりとした草の香りがし、 "Chlorophyll - Blattgrün"は "Bio Cycle"シリーズの中で最も象徴的な1枚となっています。
  3. 小麦 - Stroh (小麦) 最大50%の小麦繊維が木材パルプを置き換え、ドイツのバイエルンの農地からの5%の稲わらが含まれています。異なる長さと形状の稲わらが紙の表面に散らばり、触れることで自然で穏やかな感触が伝わります。
  4. カンナビス - Hanf (麻) ヨーロッパで大量に栽培されている麻から取られ、麻の粗いが堅牢な繊維が紙の剛性を高めます。やや淡い黄みを帯びた柔らかな色合いと、表面に繊維の細片があるため、自然な生態や地球色のテーマに適しています。
  5. ラグ - Baumwolle (綿) 衣料品業界の廃棄された綿を再利用して、木材パルプと組み合わせます。表面は柔らかく快適な綿の触感を持ち、綿の長繊維特性により、ホットスタンプやデボス加工などのエンボス加工に適しています。





1. Cycle – Kreislauf (循環)

2. Chlorophyll – Blattgrün (葉綠素)
取材於巴伐利亞(Bavarian)無邊無際的大草原,在當地茂盛生長的草被收割和乾燥後,以本身植物的葉綠素將紙張染色,形成天然的青草綠色。以及靠近鼻子會有清香的草味,使得「Chlorophyll – Blattgrün」成為「Bio Cycle」系列中最具有標誌性的一張。

3. Wheat – Stroh (小麥)

4. Cannabis – Hanf (麻) 

5. Rag – Baumwolle (棉花)
