Here's some more information from Praet:
ONE DAY PAPER WASTE - TABLE
This table is a second edition of the One Day Paper Waste - cabinet concept.
Initially asked to design a table/console in limited edition for EatDrinkDesign and shown during the Dutch Design Week 2007 in Eindhoven (The Netherlands), One Day Paper Waste - table is now produced by Droog Design and has been launched at Droog Design’s exhibition during the Salone del Mobile 2008.
One Day Paper Waste is a little table/console, obtained by taking shredded confidential documents, mixing them with resin and compressing them into a strong mould... End result: a new interesting object that has the strength of wood.
Material: Shredded paper (recycled), resin (transp.)
Production & distribution: Droog Design, Amsterdam

Commissioned by L’Uomo Vogue, in collaboration with Yamamay, one of Italian’s leading underwear brands, I was asked to design a special edition for the ‘Yamazonia - The Design and the Nature’ event, shown at Galleria Cardi in Milano.
