Athens based talented designer Savvas Laz presents his last work TRASHFORMERS.

Trashformers is project that deals with the major issue of recycling, disposal and use of styrofoam in the packaging industry, an industry that is very limited to the recycling of this material.

Pieces of styrofoam , such as those often found in the packaging of appliances such as fridges, washing machines, TVs etc., were used as a main structure for that object. By trying out different compositions , the purpose was to convert these pieces, found in trash bins , into unique objects of everyday use.

The styrofoam structure was covered with a water based resin mixed with powder, pigment and fiberglass so as to give strength to the object and make it usable. Each object comes from a unique combination of random styrofoam packaging pieces, which makes them one of a kind. You can have a closer look at all the items at the special exhibition that is held in the AMPERSAND art space curated by Rodeo Gallery till 28 of Sep at the Mavromateon 43 Street.
