The Magazine Bench definitely makes the best use of good reads. If I could build my own furniture out of publications, I would have a full living room set.

What a great way to reuse old magazines! This steel structure retains its shape and strength, upholstered by paper. The seat is a prototype made for an exhibition for Design Week in Mexico. It's no surprise that this page-turning Magazine Bench won.

Implications - In the last few years, there has been an increased consumer focus on products that are sustainable or environmentally friendly. A company can capitalize on this by creating a limited edition 'found materials' product. The product allows the company to trumpet its commitment to a healthy environment, and will attract interest from eco-conscious consumers. Stats for Upcycled Paper Furniture Trending: Older & Average
