A waste project

“Waste is a design flaw”. - Kate Krebs Traditional resources are finite and expensive but waste is abundant and cheap. By retrieving some of these resources from the disposal stream and re-imagining them in new contexts, we can add value to them and revise common perception about waste materials. This collection is made from by-products of poultry industry, namely, eggshells and feathers. The aim is to create alternatives for plastic disposables and encourage sustainable living. All the objects are 100% biodegradable and once their purpose is over, they can literally be crushed and thrown away in the compost.
Midushi is a young designer from India who recently graduated from Central St. Martins with a Masters degree in Industrial Design. She follows a material-driven approach to solving design related issues and creates radically new, useful products.
