MATERIAL DESIGN, RESEARCH / DEVELOPMENT
Even dust is a material.
‘Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because we’ve been ignorant of their value.” (Buckminster Fuller)
WHY: Studio Dust has as a main focus to up-cycle industrial waste into material-products. The studio operates within the circular economy. Everything will turn into dust, and is created from dust; from dust to dust. I’m interested in designing the material rather then the end-product, and I have a fascination for the industrial waste: dust. Everything has value.
HOW:The material is always the starting point in the design process. It results in material design, material research or attempts to reveal new qualities in the material by creating a new narrative around the material.
