If you've ever found yourself getting frustrated with endless amounts of junk mail and catalogs showing up in your mailbox each morning, you might want to consider taking a page out of Jens Praet's book.

Using millions of pieces of shredder paper, the talented designer built this six-foot recycled table around an aluminum skeleton. The finished product is six feet long and is currently on display at the Industry Gallery in Washington, D.C.

Implications - Consumers in modern society are looking for items that are made with more familiar products. Designs with the ability to relate to shoppers are appealing to those who want a closer connection to what they purchase.
