Recycled Design

During the opening party for MOCA’s SKIN + BONES: Parallel practices in Fashion and Architecture exhibition they had some interesting designs in the courtyard.

First there were these amazing benches that were bails of old clothing. Next, the tables were topped with crumpled wire mesh which acted as a vase for a few Tillandsia plants, also know as air plants.

The benches reminded me of this very interesting recycled clothing chair I saw a while back that was designed by Tejo Remy. Besides the great use of recycled materials, I really liked how these designs created new uses for ordinary materials.
