The PaperChair is an eco-friendly chair made from 100% recycled materials, including expired flour and old newspapers. To create the chair, two students of Faculty of Architecture in Slovenia, Peter Plantan and Nusa Zupanc, first used thinly shredded old newspaper, a natural flour-based glue and recycled foam board to create a molded frame. After a mold was shaped, damp paper slices were layered and pressed together to form the surface of the PaperChair. The students’ design won first prize at the Architecture Workshop AWR Awards.
