Designing the future using recycled materials. #loopclosed
Working with eco-conscious designers, craftsmen + innovators, we capture landfill-fated materials to give them a new existence. You can find items made from recycled rubber, or reclaimed wood, or recycled plastic bottles, or hundreds of other recycled materials.
Discerning that lost-function does not mean no-function, Jason Utgaard is focused on designing tomorrow's world using only recycled materials. Growing up working in his family's nationwide chain of retail stores provided an all-encompassing perspective of our culture of unconscious consumption and the impacts of one-way supply chains.
In his TEDx Talk (see it here), Jason details a world made from cigarette butts, worn out jeans, old tires and even dirty diapers. To see beyond trash, he encourages you to conceptualize yourself no longer as a "consumer" but rather as a "temporary user."
