Jasper Morrison creates lightweight cantilever plastic Evo-C chair for Vitra

Jasper Morrison and Vitra have created what they describe as the “first successful translation” of the classic cantilever chair in plastic, the Evo-C.

The Evo-C is made of recyclable polypropylene but otherwise resembles the silhouette and proportions of tubular steel cantilever chairs, which have no rear supporting legs.

According to Vitra, developments in gas injection moulding technology had made it possible to achieve the necessary strength for a cantilever chair with a minimal form while using plastic.

Studio Agne uses waste materials to create dyes for Lutetia and Juno rug collection

Design studio Studio Agne has created a collection of rugs that were crafted using textile dyes made from byproducts from industrial processing.

The studio applies natural dying techniques to industrial-scale production in an attempt to avoid the environmentally harmful use of commercial textile dyes.

“Commercial textile dyeing causes a significant amount of environmental and health problems due to the chemicals used in the process, whereas natural dyeing is rarely employed on an industrial scale,” Studio Agne explained.

“Typically, secondary raw materials don’t meet the ‘industry standard’ or are contaminated and are therefore dumped or down-cycled.”
