this trend is really popping up everywhere. i get around 150 new design submissions a day and i'm noticing that at least 5-10 of them are made of collapsible paper products that fold out to become seating or side tables. this particular project, the newspaper extendable bench by charles kaisin, is another great example of the heart of the trend: reusing materials to create new products. charles used recycled newspapers to create this extendable bench that can easily be refolded and stored away. the designer claims it has the strength of wood so i'd be really intrigued to test one of these guys out. i've used products similar to this made of cardboard and they're suprisingly sturdy for people are varying weights. you can click here to find on the newspaper extendable bench.
