CMYK Chair explores recycling and reuse of waste paper. Shredded paper pulp was moulded over a CNC cut form, combining making and digital fabrication techniques. The piece uses double curvature and ribbing to create an extremely strong and comfortable shell structure. A closer look at the materiality tells the story of the magazines it is made from in the fragments of text sprinkled like terrazzo on the surface.
