Ro Plastic Prize award was an initiative that had its first edition during Milan Design Week 2019, consisting of a challenge from Rossana Orlandi to young designers who wished to contribute to give a whole new take on plastic through new innovative design projects.

Substantial furniture collection by Alexander Schul 

A look into the winner projects of the Ro Plastic Prize award

This innovative new collection by Alexander Schul is composed by a chair, a lamp and a side table all of whom are made entirely from recycled plastic. These three objects were created by using sheets of high-impact polystyrene. The designs are intended to be universal, practical and easily manufacturable on a large scale, using efficient production methods.

Plastex project by Hend Riad and Mariam Hazem

The Plastex project was created by Hend Riad and Mariam Hazem from Reform Studio. This initiative is essentially composed by a line of colorful textiles which were made of reused plastic bags. The company aims to realign the perception of plastic bags by incorporating this material into everyday products, among them furniture pieces such as stools and chairs. With this project for the Ro Plastic Prize contest, they hope that these bags start being seen more as valuable resources to be recycled instead of mere items used for and as trash.

Precious Plastic by Dave Hakkens

This consists of an ongoing initiative led by Dutch designer Dave Hakkens, which won the conscious innovation projects category. Precious Plastic has designed a series of machines made for the purpose of recycling plastic accompanied by a series of open-source video tutorials that actually show viewers how to make the machines by themselves.

These machines can be designed through the use of basic materials, tools, and universal parts. Among the list of such machines you can build for yourself we have a shredder machine, an extrusion machine, an injection machine, and a compression machine.
