A Korean – New Zealander designer, Woojai Lee have developed PaperBricks. He designed PaperBricks by recycling the waste paper into the bricks to develop stylish furniture. He just wants to save natural resources and create eco-friendly benches and coffee tables with normally wasted resources.
To develop this PaperBricks, Lee smashes used newspapers and adds wood glue to give it a marbled look. Its marble-like texture offers a cool beauty to your space. When the material starts drying, he molds the trash into bricks. It looks almost tough and powerful as their cement counterparts.
This PaperBricks can easily fit for modern decorating. Its colour relies on the used newspapers. Palates can be easily blended with the rest of your furniture.

Lee said, “Using the PaperBricks, the PaperBricks Pallet series were created to show how the bricks could be used constructively. I like drawing and sculpting as well. PaperBricks don’t just serve as furniture to me. They’re intimate sculptures as well.”
A question that generally occurs about terrifying facts about paper wastage. We even can build 2,500 miles (almost 4,000 km) high wall of paper. Recycling is a great way to dispose of it.
He said, “Recycling just one ton of paper saves around 682.5 gallons of oil, 26,500 liters of water and 17 trees.”
PaperBrick’s prove that utilising different materials to find new functions of them isn’t that hard. As it is waterproof, but we can’t say about its longevity. Paper bricks have several advantages over the existing system. For example, including shorter publications, better competition for new ideas, as well as an accelerated innovation process. Paper bricks can implement with minimal change to the existing peer review systems.
