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.
The pieces are a reaction to the vast amounts of wastepaper produced in offices – converting otherwise useless documents into valuable and useful objects. In order for the material to fuse into a useable compound, the confetti-like mixture was met with resin, moulded, and allowed to harden – producing a firmness similar to wood and a peppery aesthetic. All pieces were manufactured by Dutch company Wandschappen.
