debbie wijskamp: paperpulp cabinet

paper pulp cabinets and tableware, 2009

the paper pulp cabinet by debbie wijskamp, is a totemic white furniture piece, constructed from various oblong boxes stacked upon one another. some have drawers, while others are left open to function as shelves. at first glance, they look like they are made from the polystyrene containers used to pack fish, but instead each inch-thick box component has been moulded from paper pulp and assembled using simple box-jointing techniques borrowed from woodwork.

the paper pulp cabinet will be on show at designhuis, eindhoven as part of the second annual ‘talent’ exhibition during dutch design week. the works of graduates from 30 european design institutes and universities will be showcased from october 17th to october 24th, 2009.
