WASTE HOME DECOR

COLLECTION OF HOME DÉCOR GLASSWARE, USING MATERIAL FROM WASTE ELECTRONIC APPARATUS WHILE KEEPING THE DNA OF THE ORIGINAL PRODUCT

The project

Common Sands is a collection of glassware originating from research into using waste materials from electronic apparatus and appliances to produce designer glass utensils. Each piece of glassware will be laser engraved, telling about its origin and process of transformation. The project will create handcrafted local products involving the creation of a new local economic cycle using waste locally, empowering local employment through the disassembly of discarded devices producing new design-based products that tell a story bringing together sustainability, handcraft, technology and design.
