Kerameikos by German-Iranian designer Siba Sahabi is a collection of ancient Greek pottery inspired miniature vessels made from spun paper that resembles porcelain. Adopting its name from an area in Athens that was known for centuries as the potters’ quarter, the paper spun pieces abstractly replicate foreign objects that filtered into Greece through trade to influence its developing aesthetic.
