As a reaction to the huge amounts of wastepaper produced in offices, Shredded finds another use for it, turning this abstract concept into a reality.


Non-useful documents and leftover magazines are transformed into valuable and useful objects. To this end are being mixed the confetti from shredded paper and resin into a mould and letting it harden to become rigid objects.

The paper-resin composite boasts a firmness similar to wood and has a unique appearance. Paper waste returns to our living or working area as functional furniture, bringing to mind just what little thought we give to general use of paper.
