Recycled Paper Lights
By Jaime Gillin –
I recently came across the work of Pia Wüstenberg, a German-born designer whose recent obsession is transforming piles of waste paper (posters, magazines) into striking pendant lights and tables. First she rolls them around a tube, laminating each sheet on top of the other with a glue-based mixture. Then she uses a woodworking lathe and carving tools to shape the piece, much as a woodworker creates a turned bowl. For further insight into her working process, check out this video: Processed Paper from pia wustenberg on Vimeo.
