Sandra Böhm's furniture series Prei – Furniture from Recycled Paper – is in every respect a collection of small pieces of furniture whose archaic character can hardly be surpassed. This is not only true for the material and production method, but also the final appearance. The furniture items consist of a mix of paper pulp to which kaolin and common wood glue are added. This pulp is poured between the loosely arranged stack of bricks representing the female mould of the desired piece of furniture. Once the material has dried, the bricks can be removed. The piece is finished. This is not only extremely simple and cost-efficient, robust and durable, but even – entirely without complex programming – also infinitely variable and thus can be perfectly adjusted to very different needs.
