Supernovas transforms plastic waste into design objects for everyday use, starting a virtuous circle. How? Let's discover the Volta line together
Design and sustainability they go more and more hand in hand: together with production processes facilitated by new technologies, a good part of the difference is also made by the choice of reusable and recyclable materials. That's what it does Paula Cademartori, an Italian-Brazilian designer who created Supernovas, a company based in London and Milan that is committed to transforming waste into design furniture items, totally recyclable. And when the passion for one's work meets the desire to protect the environment, something creative can only be born.
The called line Time perfectly sums up this philosophy: in Italian the word time refers to the concept of architectural form, while in Portuguese it means return. Volta is a line of household items created using 100% recycled plastic (PETG) through the 3D printing technique, but the beauty is that this transformation is not definitive.
In fact, customers have the possibility to purchase, return and exchange purchased products. How does it work? PET plastic bottles are reduced into filaments, added with natural dyes and processed with one 3D printer. No other material is used: this way you can ensure that that plastic it will never go back to being a refusal, but it can still be recycled, giving life to the so-called circular design.
And this is how plastic containers and bottles are transformed into resistant vases, glove box, caskets or smartphone holders pastel colors. Even in the kitchen there can be many uses: from cutlery tray a container for popcorn to use during an evening with friends. And when you want to change, you just have to start the cycle again.
