EOSkate - Paper Skateboard

Client: EOS

Invited by EOS México, AGENT developed a skateboard made out of recycled paper from a wrongly-printed batch of books.

While printing the books, the first batch went wrong, so the publishing house ended up with several hundreds of (somehow) useless books. EOS then invited AGENT to create a design piece with the books.

Alberto Villarreal and his team at AGENT, started brainstorming about what to do with the books they got. Roughed out several ideas and ended up designing a skateboard made out of paper mixed with resin.

AGENT saw this as an opportunity to experiment with materials and applied a non-linear “A to B” process for the design.

The fact that the book itself has so much color in the pages encouraged the team to play up the graphic content, and after experimenting with the paper (cutting, folding, weaving, mixing), and analyzing its properties, a new creative path was taken.
