Looking Out for the Future

A lot of designers in the recent years are looking to design and produce products in a more environmentally friendly way. For example a company in the Netherlands called Plasticiet, is changing the way we use recycled plastic.

They use the recycled plastic to produce sheet-like material that looks like terrazzo stone composites and marble. They currently produce sheets that are 80cm by 80cm, they want these sheets to be made available for interior and furniture design. The fun and beautiful patterns on the sheets would work really well on any furniture design. They are hoping to collaborate with companies like Ikea, a large company that can reach to a lot of people.

If more and more people have the passion and ambition to create and design things while being environmentally conscious, it would be a big step forward in saving our Earth. When it comes to designing and art, we should be looking for every possible way to make our work environmentally friendly

    That would be really interesting if they did work with Ikea. It would probably change their business a lot if it became a big thing for them. It would be nice to look at numbers or statistics about the amount of energy used and needed to produce this plastic.
