Flatstack furniture

Landis Kauffman has some work in the MFA Row, one of the ancillary exhibition spaces for graduating RISD MFA candidates in Providence, RI. The pieces, including the Flatstack bench and stool pictured all find interesting ways of using everyday materials. At first glance the furniture has the unyeilding look of concrete, but upon close inspection one can see that they're actually made out sheets of newsprint. Adds an extra dimension to the idea of "kicking back with the paper." Heh.

Cool. These should also be made using phonebooks. I get a new one about every 3 months, such waste could be put to better use.
