A paper fibre can be recycled five to seven times. The fibres must then be sieved from the paper cycle and disposed of as waste by the paper recycling factories.
A single paper recycling plant has to utilise up to 75 tons of waste fibres every week. Which currently means putting into landfill or burning it.
Recycling Reject demonstrates the possibility of using the non-recyclable fibres as a building material by pressing them into a hard solid. The end result is a strong, stone like material. This adds another product cycle to the raw material cellulose fibre. The new material can be used to build several pieces of furniture, with a unique look and functional aesthetics.
All pieces are made in our studio in Eindhoven.
