PaperBricks

‘PaperBricks’ 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 fibers grow smaller and the quality downgrades. I wanted to give new sustainable and long lasting life.

‘PaperBricks’ are made from recycled newspapers. The newspaper is turned into pulps which are mixed with glue and shaped into bricks. Sturdy as real bricks they combine a pleasing marbled look with the warmth and soft tactility of the paper. When you touch the PaperBricks, you can feel the soft textile-like texture.
