FrontRunners: Cut and Paste

    Florence-based artist Jens Praet has added five pieces to Shredded (www.jenspraet.com), his limited-edition collection of furniture rendered from the pages of magazines. Praet mixes the shredded pages with resin and then molds the concoction into forms that are surprisingly strong once they dry. The artist used issues of Robb Report to make a 55-inch-long shelf, which, along with the other new items, will be on display at Washington, D.C.’s Industry Gallery (www.industrygallerydc.com) through February 26.
