Called Paperpulp, the pieces are made from pulped waste-paper, sawn up and treated like planks of wood.

Here's some more information from Wijskamp:


Paperpulp by Debbie Wijskamp

Inspired by different cultures, making their homes with materials found in their surroundings, Wijskamp wanted to design her own building material.

Experimenting with the re-usage of wastepaper resulted in a material with its own characteristic appearance and structure. Besides this, it is a very versatile material with many possible applications.

In contrast with the cabinets, the Paperpulp tableware items are very fragile decoration objects. The colour of the pots depend on the amount of ink used in the recycled newspapers and makes every piece unique.
