october 2018: dutch design week einhoven – Like Leather at Yksi Expo

liegend 5

 

 “The Like Leather exhibition shows a number of products, concepts and production methods developed by designers looking for alternatives to leather. Mostly from the desire to contribute to a circular economy and a sustainable world.

Some of them start with a totally different source – the skin of fish for example, or the entrails and bladders of sheep, pigs and cows. Materials that usually end up with the waste. There are also designers who use vegetable fibers such as the leaves of a palm tree. And even from coffee grounds you can make a cover for a notebook. Other examples show designers trying to extend the life span of leather or to recycle leather goods.” Yksi Expo

A selection of work, inspired by organic shapes, natural materials and traditional craftsmanship, reveals how contemporary designers interpret our world. Twisting Tradition showcases design from over 60 individuals and collectives who challenge conventional thinking with an imaginative approach to materials and techniques.” Mint
