Recyclable recycled furniture
The value of paper is typically measured by the value of the information it carries; once the information is deemed useless, the paper is discarded. Robert Buss of PUSH> reuses paper in the service of a longer-lasting function: furniture.
Disposable Office takes the most common material of workplace communication and transforms it into the workplace itself. Disposable Office furniture is composed of recycled paper, with the addition of glass and felt. Individual items are named after various paper functions, such as the Security Documents Chair, Menu Table, or Bank Statements Shelving. According to Buss, Disposable Office is “furniture made from information for the information age.”
