Repurposed Materials Stand Out at Virtual Dutch Design Week
At the virtual Dutch Design Week, we spied unique furnishings made from repurposed materials.
Standout: Foam modular seating treated with a waterproof base layer is topped by a coating of ground-down post-consumer wine corks or leather from local shoe-industry waste, with denim, linoleum, peach stones, and
coffee-bean shells on the list of future recycled contenders.
Company: Teun Zwets
Standout: The Design Academy Eindhoven graduate disrupts the planter world by combining water-soaked sawdust or paper pulp with pigment and glue, then applying the mixture to street-found vessels or ones crafted from scrapyard steel. Through Adorno Design.
Standout: This new brand with a mission to make sustainable design work at scale teamed with Peter van de Water for the flower-inspired chair, made mostly from recycled low-density polyethylene, a plastic that can be infinitely melted down and reused and, with an integrated rainwater drain, is suitable for indoors or out.
