Recycling is becoming more and more prevalent in today’s world. For the law firm Shipley Snell Montgomery in Houston, Texas, MaRS designed a custom side table made from Texas Lawyer journals for the reception area seating. These tables can be as tall or short as desired depending on how many magazine journals stacked high. There is a base and top wood piece made of stained cherry wood that have slots cut into to the block of wood to receive two tanned leather belts which binds the books in place. The binding of the law journals create an interesting visual pattern with the play of text and color.
