Jens Praet shredded collection

Jens Praet is a Belgian designer living in Panzano in Chianti, Italy. Praet studied industrial design in Florence, Italy.  According to his web site Jens has a strong passion for everyday objects, honest materials, finding inspiration in unexpected details and daily issues which often become the starting point in developing a new concept.

In his project "shredded collection" Jens is using shredded paper ranging from office documents to old magazines and mixes them with resin before turning them to furniture using a mold.



 
The collection is rich in shapes. There is a "shredded" table 




shredded bench, sturdy enough to support 2 adults





shredded shelve, made of 4 kilos of magazines can support 50 kilos





... and more.

His work is represented in Industry Gallery (Washington DC) and PlusDesign Gallery (Milano)
