Swedish trio Claesson Koivisto Rune have come up with a biodegradable environmentaly friendly chair. The brilliance shines through DuraPulp, a paper based material that is fully recyclable. Reinforced with PLA, plastic made from maize starch or cane sugar which binds with the paper fibers at 167 degrees Celsius, the result is a material that has the properties of plastic and the qualities of paper: water resistant, lightweight, yet surprisingly solid.
