We all have old newspapers sitting around waiting to be recycled but Belgian Designer Charles Kaisin is sitting around ON old newspapers that he upcycled into this amazing expandable bench. He endeavored to turn the mundane into something extraordinary in a way that would highlight the concept of recycling.
Kaisin took regular newspapers, layered, glued and compressed them to create a building material that is as strong as wood. He then took these sheets and mimicked one of natures strongest forms, the honeycomb, to create this amazing expandable bench.
It is similar to the FlexibleLove but Kaisin's design keeps the building material, newspaper, very conspicuous to serve as a visual reminder of environmental issues. His site explains that the process is simple and could easily be reproduced for minimal cost potentially making this cool concept available to the public. You can buy one right now directly from Kaisin's store, but I would call it available because it costs 8,000 euros (that's about $12,500.00, now that's extraordinary).
