NO DESIGN TO WASTE

My K-BENCH at the latest exhibition ‘No design to waste’ in Design museum Ghent!











Have you ever thought about all the plastic garbage that ends up in the sea? Mass-produced plastic has made our lives easier however the sea gradually changes into a gigantic soup of plastic. 

The exhibition ‘Out to Sea? The Plastic Garbage Project’ created by Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, dissects the different components of this distasteful plastic soup in its first part ‘Plastic in the sea’. The composition, application and life span of plastic materials are fed to the mind piece by piece in ‘Plastic in everyday life’.

Playful but insisting Design museum Gent enriches this instructive tale with a large portion of hopeful design, from recycling via upcycling to ecodesign. One of the exhibited items is my K-bench, fully made of recycled plastic waste.  Read more about the K-BENCH in a previous post.

While you are there, there is also an interesting exhibition on the work of the Danish designer Finn Juhl. Go and see!!
