334 Newspaper Bench by Oscar Lhermitte
Designed by designer Oscar Lhermitte as part of the “X days project.” This “334″ Newspaper Bench is an innovative idea that aims to make people more eco-concious. This series aims to create products that involve considerable recycling, yet avoid processes like gluing, screwing, soldering etc. 334 bench consists of three parallel bars of metal, over which are stacked 334 old newspapers.
At a first glance this bench might look fragile but it’s not, the designer claims that’s this piece of furniture has the capability of roughly holding the weight of 5 people. This project wasn’t meant to be sold, it was created with the purpose to inspire others to make their own pieces of eco friendly furniture and to make people more eco-concious.
