Lately we’ve seen some innovative and inspiring ways that designers are upcyling old periodicals . German designers NJU Studio  have created a way for consumers to take their own magazines and turn them into the cool and useful Hockenheimer stool. The DIY kit enables you to create a stool of varying heights depending on just how many mags  you have lying around.
The Hockenheimer comes with a low notched base made from natural waxed birch  to support the stack of magazines. Two slots are cut on each side to accommodate the adjustable deep brown leather or bright canvas straps that keep stacks in place. Top all that off with the accompanying natural cotton cushion, and you’ve got eco-style  for any room!
