Vessels from paper waste
PULP is a collection of containers made from paper waste, produced from the positive form of discarded containers. This collection is based on research into alternative material recovery from paper waste. The result: the development of a new material that made it possible to make the vessels water-resistant by combining the material with cellulose (such as epoxy and polyurethane). In this process, a mixture of shredded newspaper, glue and water is applied to the surface in several layers, dried and finally divided into two and removed from the mold. After they are glued together again, a final layer of the PULP mixture is applied.
