scribe's house: an apartment made of recycled paper

Argentinian artist Pablo Lehmann has created an apartment made entirely out of recycled paper. The art installation titled ‘Scribe’s House’, is a life-sized apartment complete with a bed, bookcase, bathtub, desk and chair, and little windows – all of which have been plastered with old pages in muted tones of yellow and brown. Even the walls and ceilings are plastered with pieces of recycled paper.
It took the Argentinian artist nearly two years to complete his installation working with torn pages from old textbooks, transforming his love for literature into a completely furnished home filled with words.
Lehmann’s nostalgic apartment is on display at Art Basel Miami in Florida. If you are unable to make it to the museum, Anthropologie has produced a book of images of this extraordinary exhibit – fair warning it retails for $2,300, so it may be cheaper to make the visit.

Tom Foerstel

Founder & President

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.


He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.


An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.


One of Tom’s proudest personal achievements is his ability to say Supercalifragilisticexpyalidocious backwards.
