Comments Off on CastAway makes furniture out of waste that forces us question modern consumerist culture

We live in a world dominated by the waste produced by the consumerist disposable society; everybody knows that. When it comes to design, how do we face the consequences of this problem aesthetically? Waste is often hidden, or moulded into new shining, appealing shapes in order to conceal its origins. Generating different kinds of furniture by combining and re-contextualizing both industrial and urban waste, CastAway Furniture by Ilaria Bianchi proposes and develops a new aesthetic language to embody the conceptual and physical implication of the presence of waste in our lives. The result is a collection of challenging objects that embodies a critique of the consumerist society we live in, and highlights the poignant problems related to waste production and disposal that our current system generates. + Ilaria Bianchi The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
