The present table is almost 100% made from reused paper. It is made with newspaper and magazines that came into my mailbox. Reused paper is used as structure, as skin and also as external graphic design, by using different process techniques. The present table is finished with a colorful photo collage on the top, that represents a subjective view of all the different creation phases. The present table shows very clearly the material that is made from and plays with it.For more information about this product or other projects by retrain please visit: http://retrain.endekos.com http://www.facebook.com/retrain
