Want to Sit on Your Sunday Paper?
Back from my traveling, I found this simple idea of a newspaper furniture line as refreshing as my travels. Inspired to extend the ephemeral life of newspapers, David Stovell’s Sunday Paper products consist of tightly rolled newspapers strapped together into stools. The pieces, inspired by bundles of newspapers left outside of shops on a Saturday night, explore the “compressed life cycle” of the material. The designer says, “[they] have a cultural and economic value, and that the same product has a different set of values by Monday morning, in that the news is old news and their value is for pulp. I wondered that if by simply repackaging, the material life cycle could be extended.”
