Belgian industrial designer Jens Praet’s Shredded Series upcycles old magazines and paper into handcrafted furniture. According to Praet, “what started out as a research project turned out to be a continuously growing furniture collection….Paper waste returns to our living or working area as usable furniture.” The pieces are currently on view at Industry Gallery in Washington D.C. as part of Fossilized, Praet’s first solo exhibition in the U.S.
