V3 Exhibition. Sharing possibilities for plastic recycling.

Precious Plastic V3 is a fact. We updated our entire online world, but this time, for the first time ever, we also did an offline exhibition.

Setting up an exhibition is a common thing to do as a designer. However I never did this or even felt the urge to do this, my projects are on the internet documented for everyone. Wherever you live. However for Version 3 we made sooo many new interesting experiments, tryouts, objects, techniques, texture and color blends. Things you just want to see and touch in real life.  So besides making many tutorial videos and updating our online world we also went afk.

During the Dutch Design Week we camped out on Sectie-C in a big empty building and set up an entire exhibition on Precious Plastic. Showing our machines, blocks of waste, experiments we’ve done and products made by our worldwide community. And specially for this occasion introducing our artifacts. Precious delicate crafted objects that tell a story of plastic. Showing a whole range of possibilities and applications you can do with plastic waste. Inviting and hopefully inspiring others designers around the world to start working with this material.

During the opening community members dropped by from France, Indonesia, Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria, UK, US, Taiwan. Truly amazing to see this army of plastic recyclers in real life. We’ve all seen eachother very often online and chatted, but having a real conversations definitely tops that.

A huge thanks for the team to set up this exhibition, many hours, nights and jars of peanut butter went into this. 🍞

The exhibition will run until the 29th of October.
Drop by to have a chat and touch everything 🙂
