Fossilized: Recyclable Magazine Furniture

February 9, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Designed by Belgian industrial designer Jens Praet these sleek and textured furniture pieces are constructed from shredded magazines and documents mixed with clear resin. Each of the 12 pieces was made solely from a different magazine including publications like Art in America, Details, and Fast Company. Nine of them are currently on display as part of Praet’s first U.S. solo show, Fossilized, at Industrial Gallery in Washington D.C. through February 26. (via yatzer)
