Studio Swine turns sea plastic debris into stunning decorative objects

Recycling and sustainable design slowly seem to become an empty balloon, as nowadays almost all projects are labeled “eco”, that serves rather as a marketing tool than a signal of commitment to the protection of our Earth. Studio Swine’s latest venture to the field nevertheless is a refreshing example, as they did not simply use waste material for design purposes, but at the same time they managed to draw attention to a serious are rarely covered issue.
It is, sadly, fairly obvious that natural waters are full of debris. The so-called gyres, the circular currents present in all oceans, concentrate flowing plastic waste into their centre that build up islands in the end.

The people at Swine used this accumulated plastic for their objects as the base material. The plastic, appearing in tiny pieces in the ocean, is fished out using a net, then hand-sorted by colour. To turn the pieces into a unigenous material that can be shaped, Swine created a special device. The Solar Extruder melts plastic using the warmth of the sun rays, so the manufacturing itself is also a sustainable process.

This plastic mass was then used to shape design 5 decorative objects, each representative of the 5 gyres of the North Atlantic, the South Atlantic, the North Pacific, the South Pacific, and the Indian Ocean. The finished pieces, that bear a symbolic reference to the geographical or historical  setting of the area they represent, intentionally recall the look and feel of precious stones and jewellery. The Gyrecraft project demonstrates that waste, harmful for the environment, in fact holds extremely high value when recycled.
