Making Waste Beautifully Useful

In a sustainable world, even ‘waste’ is not to be wasted. It must be used for useful creations, and beautiful designs created out of waste, showcased at Salone del Mobile conveyed this message loud and clear. #SurfacesReporter’s team is glad to share a few of the phenomenal designs that would surely INSPIRE everyone to do more for the environment!

PANEL BASED ON ‘CIRCULAR DESIGN’

For designing this sustainable acoustic interior panel not only sustainable materials have been used, but also the assembly method allows for efficient material re-use at the end of its lifetime. The tactile and soft outside layer is natural wool. It is combined with recycled denim. A combination of artistic hand painting and digital micro moulding is applied to join the layers and to create an visual embossing effect. The shell is made out of flax and renewable & biodegradable plastic, while the ‘core’ of the design has been made from recycled denim and recycled wood. Made by: Studio Bas Froon in partnership with Belgian textile artist A+Z Design by Genevieve Levivier www.surfacesreporter.com/Showcase/Jul-2019/AplusZ-Design
