DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Paper Table

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
A Table

INSPIRATION:
The nature of paper pulp has changed correspondingly from soft, light and thin to hard, tough and thick. Then the paper takes place of the wooden table top, with a soft form outside but solid inside. Though the same of the table is soft table, the difference between its visual impression and the inner character makes it an interesting complex, the designer redefines the nature of the product.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The unique feature of soft table lies in excavating the special nature of paper in order to design it for the undulating shape. Its function is defined for taking a sleep or a snooze. The curves on the table top are in accord with the curvature changes of human body engineering. It is fit for the posture when people bend over the table and it is also for normal use. The special function of paper table does not only reflect in the appearance of its physical appearance, but the most important factor is embodied in its material particularity. For the visual perception, paper feels gentle and natural like cotton because it is soft, but for this product, the designer makes the paper table to be solid and load-bearing after casting.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
First step: mix waste paper pulp, and inject it into the mold. Second step, remove the mold, dry the casting product block. Last step, complete the final product by mechanical cutting and grinding product prototype.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The design started in January in Beijing China.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Materials: recycled paper pulp, maple

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:

table, furniture

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The first step is material research, leading to the material of “paper brick”. It is a porous paper brick which is made from recycled paper pulp. Its size is 42*21*7cm. the property of paper and brick is conflicted through casting, from presenting, developing to strengthening. When the paper is presented in a brick shape, it's weak but strong, soft but hard. The second step is the product “paper table”, which use the same casting technology as paper brick.

CHALLENGE:
The designer has turned the waste paper pulp into solid material through solidification treatment to make its strength as plates with plasticity and has a three-dimensional curved surface. This is the original idea of this work. The nature of paper pulp has changed correspondingly from soft, light and thin to hard, tough and thick. Then the paper takes place of the wooden table top, with a soft form outside but solid inside. Though the same of the table is soft table, the difference between its visual impression and the inner character makes it an interesting complex, the designer redefines the nature of the product.
