Dutch designer Jo Meesters has developed a collection of vessels made from waste paper pulp.
Meesters combines the paper pulp with resins to make a water-tight material and moulds it around discarded pots.

PULP is a collection of vessels made entirely out of paper pulp using discarded vessels as a mould. The collection started as a research searching for alternative materials made out of paper waste.
By combining other materials with pulp such as epoxy and polyurethane, a new material is born with it’s own characteristics leading to a series of vessels made out of paper that can hold water.
