How can a natural feel be brought back to an industrial waste material?

Seeing the growing piles of waste paper around the city, I did a little thinking about what I could create from this plentiful material. What emerged after a lot of tinkering was a resin laminate compressed in a mold; a material that is both strong, and very interesting to design with.

The almost natural layers of contrasting paper brought a real interest something even as simple as a door stop, so I worked this idea in to a pair of earrings, as well as a stool.
