Latex Roll Pouf made from left-overs in latex

July 5th, 2011 - 
 

Incredible good looking pouf made from the left-overs coming from a shoe factory from Italy. Once the foot print shapes are cut, there are these bright coloured latex materials. For sure, the poufs made from this recycled material must be confortable and soft.
Designer Ricrea, master in “upcycling” created these pieces of furniture only for indoor use because latext can not stay in the sun and it is very sensible to water also. If dirty, you can peel it off. The goal of this pouf was to prevent
the consume of new materials
by using existing latex left. This implicates the reduction of energy usage, water and air pollution or the reduction of the gas emissions in the process of furniture fabrication.
