NuPaper

Abstract or Summary of Project

Every product design process begins with a choice of either form or function. Material was chosen as the start of this project.

In a bid to create awareness on the effects of waste created daily, newspaper was chosen. Fixed limitations created opportunities to explore and push the boundaries of what the material could do. By manipulating its appearance and properties, undervalued objects can be made desirable.

NuPaper contains pulped newspapers fused with biodegradable plastic to create a durable composite.  It aims to mould the mindsets of tomorrow’s generation by providing exposure to objects created from materials commonly regarded as waste.
