This colorful shelf is made entirely from recycled National Geographic magazines. It was designed by Sean Miller, who was inspired by the stacks of old magazines cluttering his living room. First Sean coated the magazines with a a water/starch mixture and then he placed them under pressure for about a week to harden. Next he took a band saw to the consolidated stack and carved out space for a shelf. Holes were also cut into the bookshelf’s sides, allowing it to slide onto three rods to be hung. About 80 mags were used. [Credit: Inhabitat]
