Heat Press Machine
The inspiration for working with recycled plastic came from a forum called the Precious plastic community. Dave hakkens, founder of Precious Plastic, introduced DIY machines for reprocessing plastics. This led us to experimenting with melting waste products in the domestic ovens. Limitations with the DIY machines were the size. The whole awareness of using recycled plastics into day to day products, and we took this as a challenge to slowly help establish the relation and acceptance of the material with the people. Acceptance of such recycled materials into our daily lives might be a step in pushing the smaller dominos for a gradual, but bigger change and we wanted to be a part of this change.
