Designer Nicolas Cheng of Studioroom906 [2] is presenting this beautiful set of stationary made from recycled eggshells at the Milan Furniture Fair [3] 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 [4], 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.”
