Charles Kaisin: Newsworthy Seating

11Aug06

Props to Belgian designer Charles Kaisin (seated above) for turning recycling into a style statement. His Newspaper Extendable Bench is an ingenious eco-friendly transformation of the mundane into the extraordinary. Recycled newspapers are carefully glued together in a honeycomb fashion to create seating that structurally sound and expandible–like an accordion. I love that it can be molded by the owner into many positions to suit your needs or taste, then recycled when it comes to the end of its useful life. This is eco-style at its best. You can see more of his beautifully recycled furnishings here.
