From Yuhang is a design collective based in China that applies local paper making techniques to furniture design. During this year’s Milan Design Week they unveiled their Gú Chair, which is molded from bamboo paper pulp. Made entirely from renewable fast-growing materials, the furnishing represents the fusion of traditional craft and contemporary design.
This year’s Milan Design Week has come to an end, but we spotted so many great sustainable design pieces that we are still going on about it. From Yuhang celebrates the craft of traditional Chinese bamboo paper making through sustainable design. Their Gú Chair combines a delicate-looking shell of molded bamboo pulp with a sturdy untreated Beech base.
