The Third Generation Furniture project is the ultimate in turning trash into treasure. Industrial designer Jason Lloyd Fletcher set out to turn unwanted materials into new, functional pieces of modern furniture.
The two main goals were first, to avoid sending items with “functional value” to the landfill by reworking their components into new pieces and second, to promote the reuse of items that can alternatively find value elsewhere.
To like many people spontaneously and without effort is perhaps the greatest of all sources of personal happiness.
Paper pencils by Droog
‘The pencils are made of paper from used magazines and newspapers, by rolling paper on the carbon core. In the production process as little glue as possible is used while maintaining the desired quality. Every pencil is unique and handmade in a social workshop in the Netherlands.’
The pencils are part of the UP series by Droog
