iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

This product is designed to directly convert printing paper used in offices into household tissue paper with high water absorption and decontamination capacity. The rationale behind the design of this product is that we use a lot of printing paper in offices. At the same time, due to the complexity and low efficiency of paper recycling systems, most of this paper is not effectively recycled. This product can not only save on human and material resources in the recycling process but also significantly improve the recycling rate of paper.

This "paper conversion machine" looks at reducing the carbon footprint of the act of recycling. Beyond the finished byproduct, the physical interaction gives its users a visual reminder to pursue a more sustainable lifestyle.
