Scrap_Cmyk

Scrap_Cmyk

A 100% polyester fabric made by recycling plastic bottles and a pattern reminiscent of printing errors and ink stains produced by toners when about to run dry. The process in question is upcycling, which brings an abandoned object back to life, renewing and recovering it in a continuous virtuous cycle. An industrial product fuelled by the values of sustainability and respect for the environment, transforming the ideas provided by the waste material (sheets of paper) and creative inspiration (color) into production opportunities. “I often find myself thinking about how to interpret the theme of recycling and re-use in my work, in a way that allows me to assign a new value to something that was once considered waste. So I then looked around and translated the mess produced in my studio into a project”, states the Japanese graphic designer. And this was the spark that led to my collection of curtains, real contemporary canvases. — kinnasand.com
