Adhocism Part 2 - Design for recycling/Upcycling

10th June 2014

Continuing the posts from Chelsea's Adhocism brief, Rose Danford Philips, a knit student at Chelsea used bio resins to give her waste materials a second life under the umbrella of TED 2 Design for recycling/Upcycling, but interestingly Rose also considered a third life by including varying seeds into her pieces.

Taking waste from her every day life to include waste from the kitchen such as salt and chilli flakes she also collected waste from her college projects to include yarn from the studio floor and dye stuff from the dye lab.

Put into bio resin to create exquisite new materials for her jewellery pieces Rose also added wood from the wood working studio and old knitting needles as well as poppy seeds, Judean Palm seeds and meadow seed mix as it is particularly useful for attracting bees which are in decline.

Rose's outcome was not only desirable which is key to the idea underpinning the notion of up cycling, but her consideration for the third life when her up cycled products became redundant is truly poetic.

Also looking to TED 2 and considering the second and third life of his designs Seiichi Yamamoto chose to use only natural fibres and materials that would bio degrade naturally at the end of their second life.

A weaver, Seiichi spun new yarns from waste materials cut from clothes that had reached the end of their useful life. Taking into consideration the idea of tweed fabrics and the swedish yarn technique of Trasmatta and Japanese Sakori, he created a series of beautiful yarns and up cycled fabrics.
