About

 

Since April 2015 we work hand in hand addressing solutions to postconsumer plastic recycling in the area of Amsterdam. Up to now we have developed a personal skill-set and processes that enable us to use plastic for the productions of experimental high-end and affordable objects and generate artistic and economical value out of materials that would be discarded otherwise.

Our projects are characterized by a strong ethical approach to environmental issue and by the criticality of reevaluating discarded materials meeting the needs of innovative business models. We prototype and build our projects in-house combining modern digital manufacturing technologies and revisited traditional craft techniques.
