Designer Jens Praet elevates humble materials into works of art and transforms trash into usable objects. After graduating from the master’s program at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2007, he established his studio in Italy’s Chianti region. Praet broke onto the scene at 2008’s Salone del Mobile with One Day Paper Waste, a table made of shredded magazines in collaboration with Droog Design; since then he has created additional pieces for the shredded collection in collaboration with ELLE Decor and Fast Company magazines. With a conceptual, avant-garde approach combined with traditional techniques, he has created high-end furniture from chipboard and made tables that reference the melting Arctic icecaps.
