Waste Not, Want Not: Non-Woven by Christian Kocx
Taking unwanted bits of plastic from an injection molding machine, Dutch designer Christian Kocx has created "Non-Woven," a small collection of ultra-modern furniture, lighting and accessories. Originally presented during the furniture fair in Milan in April 2007, it popped up again just a couple of weeks ago during Dutch Design Week 2007.
Kocx creates some pretty interesting shapes, the bowls (pictured after the jump), especially, are decidedly nest-like, in a non-ridiculous way. A by-product of their materials, the designs' lines and style help showcase that anything can be upcycled, that there isn't any material that can't be (slightly) modified to create eye-catching, resource-saving design. It's a great example of how nothing -- not even plastic offcasts from an injection molding machine -- needs to be discarded.
