From Yuhang [1] is a design collective based in China that applies local paper making techniques to furniture design. During this year’s Milan Design Week [2] 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 [2] has come to an end, but we spotted so many great sustainable design pieces that we are still going on about it. From Yuhang [1] celebrates the craft of traditional Chinese bamboo [3] paper making through sustainable design. Their Gú Chair combines a delicate-looking shell of molded bamboo pulp with a sturdy untreated Beech [4] base.
