Poly Bond

Poly-bond is a material-driven project using only plastics, aimed at creating hard and semi-hard long-lasting woven surfaces. Throughout the research process, a range of plastics have been collected and eventually manipulated in various ways, often delivering unexpected outcomes.

The theme of plastic is paramount to the project, not simply as the material, but also as a conceptual component to the overall piece. The attempt at understanding the life-cycle of plastic, from its use in households to its disposal in junk-yards, has provided much insight into the possible uses of plastic in a more eco-friendly world. The finished samples would be suitable for both interior and exterior usage.
