Organic Factory

Short description

Waste from a plastic extruder is captured by a mold that transforms it into a bench or stool

Description

In a factory, overproduction is common. In between shifts, plastic is dripping on the floor. Instead of this, Ruben Thier created containers for under every extruder. By this, the plastic is collected as an overproduction archive. From these plastic ‘lumps’ Ruben created benches and stools, named by their machine and week of production, one can see the amount of ‘waste’ is captured in furniture. The collection is growing, because production never stand still. The furniture comes with a serial number containing date, factory and machine. Now it becomes something, instead of being waste.. Have a look at the website of Ruben Thier
