SuperCylers, a design duo from Australia, are presenting a collection of designers that have created work that 'up-cycles' old, used or under appreciated materials.
Entitled 'SOS' the show is worth a peak when you are in Ventura Lamrate, especially to see Newspaper wood - a collaboration between Mieke Meijer who concieved the idea and DesignLabel ViJ5 - Arjan van Raadshooven & Anieke Branderhorst.
Also make sure to check out the SuperCyclers website super cyclers.com where they have created a series of interviews from designers they feel embody their ethos.
Supercyclers are people who might ride bikes and who take things that are no longer being used and instead of throwing them into the great pacific garbage patch they make something beautiful, clever and useful...active immediate re-use without sending the stuff to the processing plant.
The SuperCyclers website is devoted to unearthing the best supercyclers on the planet so that you can either get hold of their products or be inspired to make your own version.
