If you liked what you saw in our Young Designers roundup in our May 2012 issue—where we spotlighted 28 up-and-coming design talents from around the globe—then don't miss this extended look at more work by those designers. Here you'll see Elisa Strozyk's additional innovative experiments with wood veneer, Pia Wüstenberg's lathed scrap paper pendant lamps, Fredrik Färg's recycled chairs made new with intricately folded and stritched felt backs, and much, much more. Click through the slideshow!

Geometric coffee table by Max Lipsey
American-born, Netherlands-based designer Max Lipsey recently released his Acciaio collection of furniture made with steel bicycle tubing and saddle leather. This is his take on a coffee table; the triangular panels fold in to obscure the contents of the attached cabinet.

Processed Paper Pendant Light by Pia Wüstenberg
Pia Wüstenberg, a German-Finnish designer based in London, created the Stacked Vessels we featured in the magazine, each made from ceramic, glass, and wood. Another project of hers we love is Processed Paper—a series of pendant lamps, table bases, and other pieces crafted from rolled wastepaper that she turns on a woodworker's lathe to create distinctive, marbleized pieces.

Wooden Carpet by Elisa Strokyk
Here's another one of her Wooden Carpets, this one with a tasseled edge. As she told writer Lindsay J. Westley, "You know how wood is supposed to feel when you touch a tabletop or a shelf, but the concept of wrapping it around your body is a new experience."

Pluvial tables by Federico Churba
Argentinian designer Federico Churba takes inspiration from his hometown for pieces like these Pluvial tables, which were inspired by water tubes he saw being used as flowerpots, tables, and containers in small towns on the fringes of Buenos Aires. They're made using molds he discovered in a spun-aluminum factory.
