According to the National Geographic Magazine, “plastic pollution has become one of the
most pressing environmental issues, as rapidly increasing production of disposable plastic products overwhelms the world’s ability to deal with them. Plastic pollution is most visible in developing Asian and African nations, where garbage collection systems are often inefficient or nonexistent. But the developed world, especially in countries with low recycling rates, also has trouble properly collecting discarded plastics. Plastic trash has become so ubiquitous it has prompted efforts to write a global treaty negotiated by the United Nations.” – Laura Parker –
A strong statement piece, and yet fun and “pop” in its look, the Re-float-able console aims at raising awareness about plastic pollution in the oceans. The buoys are 3D printed from 100% recycled plastic.
Surprising in its challenging and defying balance and brightly summery colours, the buoy console seemingly floats off the ground as if it were really immersed in the sea.
The steel chain which instead of being hanged from it, serves as the main support to the piece, is welded together as a whole column. The bespoke water effect glass top is hanged both above the chain and fixed to the wall through a small hook hidden inside the smaller white buoy.
