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.”
