For his first solo exhibition in the United States, Belgian designer Jens Praet presents Fossilized. Hosted by Washington, D.C.’s Industry Gallery, Fossilized features a series of furniture designs built from shreds of recycled paper and clear resins. Praet describes the nine objects – five from recycled magazines and four from documents – as based in his concern for sustainability and for the amount of paper wasted globally. (via Yatzer).

The exhibition opens February 15, 2011 and runs to the 26th.
