0 JENS PRAET'S SHREDDED MAGAZINE FURNITURE


Florence-based belgian designer jens praet has sent designboom his latest collection of shredded magazine furniture - to be unveiled at design miami.

The series was developed in collaboration with the publication elle decor, where kilos of the glossy leftover magazines were transformed into a mass of splintered paper - making up the main ingredients for the set.

SHREDDED TABLE ( ELLE DECOR EDITION )


As a reaction to the huge amounts of wastepaper produced in offices, Shredded finds another use for it, turning this abstract concept into a reality.

Non-useful documents and leftover magazines are transformed into valuable and useful objects. To this end are being mixed the confetti from shredded paper and resin into a mould and letting it harden to become rigid objects.

The paper-resin composite boasts a firmness similar to wood and has a unique appearance. Paper waste returns to our living or working area as functional furniture, bringing to mind just what little thought we give to general use of paper.
