Ecomondo: recycled paper becomes design

Not just green, recycled cardboard takes on design. Thus was born the new collection of eco-furnishings P-One made in collaboration with PAMIO DESIGN, the design and architecture studio founded by the well-known Venetian designer Roberto Pamio. Seats, bookcases, tables and lamps in recycled cardboard were for the first time embellished by the insertion of fabric, metal and Corian components, to make them even more stable, solid and aesthetically irresistible. The collection will be officially presented on the occasion of Ecomondo-Key Energy, the 16th International Fair for Material and Energy Recovery and Sustainable Development, scheduled in Rimini from 7 to 10 November.


A sophisticated symbiosis of elements aimed at enhancing the uniqueness of the cardboard raw material, its lightness and the added value of its recyclability, for a 100% Made In Italy production chain. The cardboard with which P-One products are made comes from paper mills of the Pro-Gest Group, the number one private group in Italy for the production of recycled paper, to which P-One belongs. Pro-Gest is the only Italian industrial company that can boast complete control of the supply chain linked to paper, from the collection of waste from recycling to paper, cardboard, boxes and finally to design furniture.

“The cardboard - explains Roberto Pamio, the founder of the firm - it is a poor, simple yet extremely fascinating material. To elevate it, we added the integration with other elements that enhance its technical properties and resistance, correcting what apparently could seem the limits of cardboard: we added regenerated cotton to the seats, an iron core and a Corian cover on the tables. We have also added the two-tone decoration with some models of lamps, a chromatic redemption compared to the raw cardboard, a reference to the relaxing line of the horizon that harmonizes well with the soft light they emanate”.

“In order to make the products truly accessible to the general public - adds the designer Paolo Pamiowe have also carefully evaluated the costs in the choice of materials and design, trying to maintain the right balance between the high quality of the design product and its price to the public. The goal is to industrialize the line, the design must be at the service of functionality ".


The added value that the collaboration with Pamio Design has brought to the work of P-ONE is decisive - he claims Tiziano Remor, a.d P-ONE - and it is also the confirmation of the high quality level reached by our company in the field of eco-furniture, a sector in which also thanks to this last partnership, we represent an excellence not only for the technological avant-garde we have for printing and cutting of cardboard but above all for the possibility of using the raw material "paper" coming from separate collection guaranteed 100% Made in Italy and from the Group's paper mills ".
