Debbie Wijskamp

Product Design (BA)


In the year 2009 Debbie Wijskamp developed her own buildingmaterial from recycled paper, which she uses to create a collection of cupboards, vases and other table objects.

Inspired by different cultures, making their homes with materials found in their surroundings,
Wijskamp wanted to design her own building material. Experimenting with the re-usage of waste-paper resulted in a material with its own characteristic appearance and structure.
Besides this, it is a very versatile material with many possible applications.

In contrast with the cabinets, the paperpulp vessels are fragile decoration objects.
The colour of the vessels depend on the amount of ink used in the recycled newspapers.
