The foaming wood process is a scientific approach to waste minimisation: From just one wooden table, seven new tables can be constructed.

Wood from one table is planed down into its constituent wood particles and recast. The wood is mixed with bio-resin to create a foaming chemical reaction which results in the material expanding to twice its size. The resulting shape of the new table reflects the vivacious behaviour of the material during the making process.
