Furniture made of recycled paper

Danish company Paper Paste Living creates interior products like furniture and lamps of recycled post-consumer paper.

The products are designed by the Danish design studio Hans Thyge & Co and produced by artisans near Barcelona in Spain. The paper is used is also collected in Barcelona. The paper is mixed with water in a blender, turning it into paper pulp without any glues added, and natural pigments for colour. The pulp is pressed into a mould and dried in the sun.

The wooden parts are made with FSC certified radiata pine and plywood, sourced locally within Spain. The fabric in the pouf is regenerated Italian cotton from the Carboni SRL factory. The factory is GRS certified and gets its energy from solar and wind power. The cushion is filled with organic coconut fibres mixed with natural latex.

Aside from the pouf, the collection includes a side table, a lamp, a basket and a vase all made of paper pulp.

Paper Paste Living is nominated for the Green Product Award 2023.
