Beyond Paper

Inhabitat is a wealth of inspiration when it comes to high design meets recycling. With a background in architecture, design and environmental graphics you can imagine that I would like to do something really creative with all the junk on our property. Matt Ganon is an architect doing a whole lot of creative design of objects reusing materials and has been featured on the Inhabitat blog a number of times for his innovative use of materials and terrific objects. One of my favorites is this paper coffee table. Yes, you read right, a paper coffee table. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to turn all of those books into tables, maybe a chair or two. This particular table is made from homasote, which is recycled paper in sheet form. Think plywood made of paper. But that doesn’t mean it couldn’t be recycled books! Also check out his nomad grass chair. It is fantastic!
