These items of furniture made from Woojai Lee’s ‘Paper Bricks’ are an exploration of how to recycle paper in more sustainable ways. Paper is among the most produced and most discarded materials in the world. It can be recycled, but not indefinitely: with every cycle the fibres grow smaller and the quality downgrades. ‘Paper Bricks’ are made from recycled newspapers. Sturdy and stackable like real bricks they combine a pleasing marbled look with the warmth and soft tactility of paper or wood. And their strength and durability are surprising: have a seat and try for yourself!
