Gallery: Recycled Eggshell Stationary by Nicolas Cheng

 

Designer Nicolas Cheng of Studioroom906 is presenting this beautiful set of stationary made from recycled eggshells at the Milan Furniture Fair this week. In his “Childhood Memories” collection, Cheng uses wasted eggshells that undergo a “high pressure technique” to create a new material that utilizes the existing proteins and mineral crystals from the shells. 100 recycled eggshells are used per set which includes a pencil, pencil holder, eraser and A5 paper.

Cheng states: “This is a set of stationary inspired by childhood memories, transforming the memories into pieces that remind you of your childhood with your mother.” Studioroom906 is a design studio based in The Netherlands that is “interested in investigating how poetic concepts can be merged with the latest technology and materials.”

    These are absolutely beautiful, great to see such an inventive use of reused materials. It is great to see people thinking outside the box.
