Display shelving configuration

We take the most common materials that used at school, home and office: PAPER. The idea is transform these used papers into new items that are highly functional, strong, aesthetic and useful. An example is Milk packaging carton, instead of discard and throw them as waste, we can convert them into quality smartphone holder.

Why UpCycling

The growing concern of global warming is because we have been over consuming the earth resources. It is very important for us to reduce waster, reuse resources and recycle them as much as possible. We must cut waste in every possible effort and extend the life span of materials. The most common resources being wasted are papers, plastic and electronic.

Common Recycled materials

We build projects from the most common recycled materials - papers. We utilizes the common knowledge of paper folding with art and craft techniques. It is therefore easy to understand and simple yet profound with renewed finished products. This can be done with minimum use of tools except our hands and creativity. It is also can be done with both children and adult.
