Cabinet of Curiosity Studio was established in 2008 by costume designer/textile artist Caroline Collinge and architect Edmond Salter. They are specialists in the paper arts, using paper materials and techniques to make installations, exhibitions, costumes and illustrations for a diversity of commissions at a variety of scales.


Cabinet of Curiosity is named after ‘cabinets of curiosities’: the Renaissance ‘wonder rooms’ containing encyclopaedic collections of objects that would tell stories to communicate knowledge and amazement about the world. The company seeks to inspire in audiences curiosity through voyages of discovery that ignite the creative imagination.
