Fully Recyclable DISPA® Installation Reveals Design Sin Confessions at BDF 2019

Earlier this year we received news that Birmingham based interior and architectural design studio SCULPT, in collaboration with STEAMhouse, a local center for creative innovation was developing an installation made of DISPA® with the goal of testing DISPA’s capabilities and unique properties.

DISPA® consists of a patented embossed formed paper core that is laminated on both sides with bright white, smooth paper surfaces – a unique composition that makes this paper board lightweight yet extremely rigid, strong and dimensionally stable. Signs created with lightweight DISPA® stay flat yet are easy to handle and hang. Manufactured with 100 percent Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)-certified paper (FSC-C074317), DISPA® is fully recyclable. (The FSC is a nongovernmental organization operating in more than 80 countries to facilitate responsible forest management in accordance with social, economic and ecological needs.)
