With WOOF&WOW we are using low-cost, open-source processing techniques for PET bottles and innovating on weaving techniques to process these bottles into material that can be used for functional products like furniture and playground products. We want to include people at the margins of society in the process of creating these kind of products because we believe that everyone has talent and regardless of their socio-demographic position should be included. With weavers in Peru we will be producing the material for the design of Icelandic designer Marta Sif.
For playgrounds we are developing and testing designs of a.o. swings made entirely of recycled PET bottles. Our goal is to work together with local communities to collectively, young and old, make these products for their local playgrounds.
