25 designers and companies present their innovative designs to challenge the status quo on plastics. Each product or project on display takes a unique approach to the plastic challenge, from bio-based packaging alternatives to recycled plastic toys and design furniture.
‘Rethinking plastic: design with a mission’ is an update of the exhibition that was briefly shown at Yksi Expo during the World Ocean Day last June, in collaboration with Searious Business and the Dutch Design Foundation. The rethinking-plastic.com website displays an extensive gallery of projects and products. The participating designers show that it is possible with creativity and courage to reconsider and rebuild our relationship with plastic. To ultimately leave a cleaner planet for future generations.
This is how the idea arose to make interior products out of it: for example, a side table or a shelf in the bathroom. A kind of mining of industrial plastic waste.
