Paper Tiles, created by the design duo Dear Human, began as a material exploration after witnessing the amount of paper waste from local industries. After many experiments in our studio, the tiles emerged as one of our family of products made from recycled paper. The tiles are as hard as board, light as cork, and can be printed or painted like paper. Other than their decorative potential, they have great sound absorbing qualities and are easy to install. We continue to use 100% post-consumer paper collected from local businesses.
Paper Tiles have been used in many commercial projects as a sound buffering wall element and is included in material libraries all over the world. Tiles are available in a gradation from natural to bleached paper colours with endless print- ing options. They can also be ordered in grey through-colours that have the appearance of concrete.
The Paper Tiles change as you add onto them— they can be an effective wall accent with just a few tiles or an impacting sound-absorbent treatment across an entire wall.
