Company: Helsingborgs gummifabriks AB
Material: Silicon rubber tubes
Approximatley 100 meters of waste are produced every time the machine is started. Since the tubes spread light and have a high heat resistance, it have served as material for lamps, one for office environment and one for home. The last step in the production lies on the user, who can cut the lamps in any haircut he/she prefers.
Company: Specialplast Wensbo AB
Production: Lasercutting, Printing
Material: Plastic IV-bags
Production of IV-bags generate inflatable cut-offs. The only addition that is needed for the leftovers to function as packaging for liquid, is one weld on the top and one weld on the bottom as well as a print explaining the content. Schampo, conditioner and soap are made to give showering a touch of self-medication. The bags can be used as refill or as they are, hanging in the shower. The content stays in the package when it is open, due to surface tension.
Company: Golvabia AB
Material: Wall to wall carpets
The production of carpets involves cutting off pieces in sizes up to 4 m2. The slippers are a complement to the carpet to create a connection between user and floor.
Clara Lindsten is an investigative, narrative industrial design for products, furniture, interiors & acessories – built on a creative process
that involves close collaborations with clients, producers& craftsmen. Although the project itself is not innovative, “recycling” is always a focused topic of innovation and the feature of future design. The style of these designs is not something fancy or luxurious, it is simple, practical and unique, not exactly like the products that we use in daily life.
The furniture industry in Vietnam has made vigorous and considerable progress, and the country is fast becoming an important export base and a world-class location for setting up furniture factories. Main goods imported from Vietnam are leather products, garments and agricultural products. However, handicraft industry has a lot of potential in Vietnam with 1500 handicraft villages. Handicraft products can recycle materials by using wasted materials from machines, making profits out of low cost, that’s the main point I saw in this project and that’s what makes the project remarkable.
