RESIN MATERIAL RESEARCH
Waste production materials put in resin become original design objects.
Suspended timeless waste floats in transparent space.
This is the idea behind the Resin Material Research objects. Resin, a sort of contemporary amber, sets and preserves wastes within. Resin’s natural brightness and transparency add precious value to waste. The pieces we recycled from manufacturing processes are included in resin and become fine design objects.
Each and every piece is unique and is made from waste materials left over from the manufacturing processes and reused.
