Waste is a new material resource. Since a few years, the work of material/product designer Tim van der Loo (NL) is shifting towards the use of secondary materials to develop new material surfaces and structures for product design. Even though his main concern is sustainability, he cares about bringing a contemporary aesthetic to recycled materials. His works are reflections of a playful approach to the function and matter of utilitarian objects.
