The main idea of this project was recycling waste material from marble, stones and synthetic stones worked inside studios. Production of flooring, kitchen and other interior design projects entails a substantial quantity of waste material. With this idea I intend to give a new life and a new economic value to those scraps.
First ideas were creating small objects, simple and low cost. Consequently I was compelled to design something planar like coasters, potholders, appetizer plates, cutting boards.
I realized a prototype of four coasters inspired by the famous 80’s video game Pac Man. The colors of tiles I found in one workshop inspired me that theme. What I found fun is the contrast between the playful shapes with this unusual and precious material.
