Beauty mirrors from canal plastics

For sustainable cosmetic brand Love Beauty Planet we have created 10 custom mirrors made from Amsterdam canal waste. Together with Plastic Whale several fans of the brand fished for plastic. In our workshop, we converted the freshly fished plastic waste into custom mirrors. A small act of love, showing the value of recycling plastic. Love Beauty Planet is a sub brand of Unilever

DESIGN PROCESS

Working with waste from canals of Amsterdam

For this project we’ve actually used the plastic waste fished from the Amsterdam canals. Working with this plastic is a real challenge, it’s dirty, deteriorated by the water and sunlight. Furthermore, we first had to find out which kind of plastics were collected to process them in the right way.

From idea to tangible product

Together with talented graphic designer cocorae we’ve translated the existing graphic style of Love, Beauty & Plant into a mosaic pattern where we could use different pieces of plastic to create this limited edition beauty mirrors.
