Pulp Fusion

Pulp Fusion is a process and a material recipe elaborated over two and a half years and over three hundred tests. From these experiments, Studio Bits to Atoms created the Paper Chair project and other furniture.

Mostly made from recycled paper, the objects produced are beautiful, solid and resistant, however they can also easiliy decompose if left outside to the elements. The designs would collapse and start to compost during rainfalls, seeds have been embedded into their structure and would be released during this process. Flowers, trees, of pioneering species would grow from the remains of the designs.

Engineered in opposite to plastic chairs that pollute the world, the Pulp Fusion Paper Chair aims to re-green the environment.
Made using a completely cold process that needs only material from the surrounding environment, Pulp Fusion furniture can be made from home. The production can be done discreetly, without a plant and has a limited carbon footprint.

Making process

All ingredients are mixed thoroughly into a paste which is spread on the mould, the drying process is natural under the sun.
