Trash to Treasure Shortlist
Below are the shortlisted entries from the “Trash to Treasure” competition. It was exciting to see a variety of approaches, and entries that were already being prototyped- we love seeing how students and designers are getting proactive and just trying things out!
Here is the brief again, just to give you a quick idea of what we were looking for when we chose these 7 entries:
We are asking you to design something beautiful and useful that uses material that are otherwise thrown away. How can your design change people’s attitude towards what is rubbish, and what we waste? We are looking for a creative and imaginative response, where new and innovative uses are found for items which are considered worthless. Being able to design using wasted materials can transform communities who have barely anything, so we would love to see your ideas, however crazy they might be.
The winner will be announced shortly, in the meantime please feel free to comment on the proposals, these competitions are all about generating thoughts and discussion, so go for it!
