Precious Trash

trash_520

One persons trash is another’s treasure. Indeed. Swedish Designer Johanna Törnqvist has created a collection created from recycled textile and plastic. Quite a beautiful fashion and environmental statement, handcrafted, and each unique. ‘Precious trash’ is a dress made out of recycled material, based on one familys consumption of coffee and pasta for 2 months. To make the dress trash has been processed and refined to become precious material’. Talk about wearing your heart on your sleeve. Perfect.

Why Don’t You…?

… transform that stack of magazines into a useful (and visually interesting!) stool?

Created by German-based design label Nijstudio, the Hockenheimer stool aims to reduce clutter, save space and upcycle your everyday goods, transforming into a creation of ultimate function. Whether you choose to stack newspapers, magazines or your favorite design books, Nijstudio provides the base and belts — you do the rest!

I can’t help but think this would make a sweet DIY project with a bit of creativity. Any takers?
