I am a furniture and product designer with a huge passion for working with my hands. My latest project has opened my eyes to the importance of sustainability in design, and the value of everyday waste materials. I have explored how these materials can be repurposed after their first life is over.
Shining light on plastic pollutants.
It is estimated that an average of 35.8 million plastic bottles are used every day in the UK, yet only 19.8 million are recycled. As a society we need to come together and understand the impact we are having on the environment with our current level of plastic consumption. This project has explored the endless possibilities of how we can reuse our waste materials and give them a second life, as well as informing and spreading the word of the importance of sustainability in production.
Working From Home.
The Plywood desk is designed for generation rent, a cohort who move around and need access to furnishings for a low cost. Lockdown saw everyone working from home without all the essentials needed to create a productive workspace. The flat packed plywood desk is designed to be easily transported and assembled, offering a cheap yet desirable workstation.
