An extension of the CMYK Chair project; CMYK Stool explores the recycling and reuse of waste paper as a viable furniture product. Shredded paper pulp is moulded over a CNC cut form, combining making and digital fabrication techniques to achieve an extremely strong and comfortable shell structure. The seat is detachable from the base which can be dismantled, flat-packed and reassembled with a variety of C, M, Y & K tops. A closer look at the materiality tells the story of the paper it is made from in the fragments of text sprinkled like terrazzo on the surface.
