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.

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.
