Papirstein is a chair made of compressed spruce paper pulp and local rosehip ink from the woods surrounding Oslo. The object is made using a compression technique commonly employed for packaging purposes. Papirstein explores the idea of a circular approach to furniture production – the material is recyclable, degradable and renewable. The project is a collaboration with the 122-year-old paper mill Hellefoss Paper in Hokksund, Norway.
