The textile waste separated before being made into Solid Textile Board.
Really: Circular by Design, Salone del Mobile Milan, 2018
Continuing our work with Danish textile leader Kvadrat and their partnership with Really, we co-curated with Njusja de Gier the second exhibition of designer commissions working with Solid Textile Board and Solid Textile Felt for Salone del Mobile 2018.
The exhibition showcased projects by seven designers using Really’s first new material made from upcycled end-of-life textiles. As well as demonstrating the potential of Solid Textile Board for use in furniture and interiors, the designers explored the changing narrative of textile resources and the massive changes and opportunities of the shift to a circular economy where end-of-life will become the start of a new life.
Participating designers: Benjamin Hubert, Christien Meindertsma, Claesson Koivisto Rune, Front, Jo Nagasaka, Jonathan Olivares, and Raw Edges.
