Although filthy, it’s the main ingredient in a product recently designed by artist and entrepreneur Jalila Essaïdi. Indeed, at ABN AMRO’s Game Changers Experience, she’s presenting the world’s very first candles made from sewage sludge.

Who doesn’t appreciate a fine leather bag glossy with age? Or your nan’s cracked enamel bread bin and all the nostalgia it evokes… But whoever heard of an ordinary conference table whose beauty and character are enhanced the more it’s used? Well, product designer Adrianus Kundert has now created the Transformer Table, which was selected by ABN AMRO for the Game Changers Experience at the 2019 Dutch Design Week. Adrianus is fascinated not just by change and wear, but also by mass production and new techniques. His practical yet creative approach has resulted in a product which is simple and surprisingly sustainable in equal measure. Gather around the table!
