WASTE VALUES


 HOW TO RECREATE VALUE FROM USED PLASTIC BAGS?


END PRODUCT : FEET HAMMOCK


WOVEN PLASTIC EXPERIMENTS

For the purpose of “It’s Your Waste” exhibition during 2015 Dutch Design Week, we dove into the potential of plastic bags as a material. Many industrial processes, like plastic, rely on the consumption of finite resources. Taking this into consideration, upcycling is necessary to reduce waste and bring new and higher value. Built to last, plastic is a strong material with specific properties such as solidity, elasticity and flexibility. The “Waste Values“ project explores those properties by developing plastic woven fabrics. We designed a hammock to highlight and contextualize the potential and preciousness of this new material.
