Paper money isn’t worth anything without its assigned value – otherwise, it would be nothing more than just a blend of cotton and linen. Most money only has a lifespan of no more than 18 months before it’s decommissioned and sent to be burned. Instead of discarding old bills, London-based designer Angela Mathis gives them new life in a project called VALUE. The shredded notes have been formed into a new textile that can serve for various upholstery needs, in this case, a series of stools. The stools contain a combination of various currencies, like the American dollar, the purple English pound, brown Indonesian rupees, and the colorful Euro.
