Designer Tim Teven has developed a process for making furniture and building blocks using the waste separated from paper fibre during the recycling process. Paper is easily recyclable, but it can’t be recycled endlessly. The cellulose fibers can be recycled up to 7 times. To create the blocks of material from un-recyclable paper, Tim Teven shredded the screen waste and combined it with mineral-based pigments and a binding agent before pressure-compressing the results into a series of moulds. The final material can be treated in different ways to produce different surface effects.
