‘PaperBricks’ by WooJai Lee are an exploration of how to recycle paper in more sustainable ways.
Paper is among the most produced and most discarded materials in the world. It can be recycled, but not indefinitely: with every cycle the fibers grow smaller and the quality downgrades.‘PaperBricks’ are made from recycled newspapers. The newspaper is turned into pulps which are mixed with glue and shaped into bricks. Sturdy as real bricks they combine a pleasing marbled look with the warmth and soft tactility of the paper. When you touchthe ‘PaperBricks’, you can feel the soft textile-like texture.

Curator: Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe
Organized by ABN AMRO
As main sponsor, ABN AMRO wants to give young designers a stage – literally. To this end, the bank has teamed up with Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe and set up six ABN AMRO Hotspots at Strijp S (in front of Klokgebouw on Philitelaan), where designers will be able to present themselves. A permanent platform has been designed for the central lobby of ABN AMRO’s office on Vestdijk, also in Eindhoven. The giant, one-metre high wing nut that adorns the hotspots symbolises the joining of forces and setting things in motion, which ties in nicely with the goals of the hotspots: bringing young, talented designers into contact with other parties.
