Designers showcase arts made with recycled plastics

ECO-oh!, an organisation which strives to make sustainable products out of waste materials, has collaborated with four Dutch designers, to present its work and showcase some of its compilations at Dutch Design Week.
From October 21st to 29th, ‘The New Normal: Let’s recycle for life’ exhibition will be at the Ketelhuisplein, featuring work by Dutch designers Basten Leijh, LINT landscape architecture, Simone Post and Studio Thier&vanDaalen, and highlighting the possibilities that can be created from household plastics recycling.
ECO-oh! works to improve solutions for recycling yoghurt pots, butter dishes and other small plastic items and believes in demonstrating alternatives to incineration and making people aware that mixed plastics can also be used as raw materials.
The exhibition ‘The New Normal’ gives insight into innovative technologies to demonstrate the possibilities of such materials.
The exhibition showcases the possibilities of recycled plastics which each of the designers have used as their raw material without limitations, including turning yoghurt pots into a bench.
“As designers, we see the task and challenge to use good and sustainable materials and to apply these in an aesthetic way, creating designs that can be cherished for a long time,” commented Studio Thier&vanDaalen.
