Merging creativity with social purpose, industrial leftovers from flip-flop factories are used to employ local people making Miss Rio Ottomans. Brazilian designer Karin Wittmann Wilsmann produces her flip-flop ottomans as part of the Ecodesign Ghetto project.
The goal of Ecodesign is to develop projects with commercial viability that use eco-friendly materials and local labor. The result of combining design with discarded material is an end product that both surprises and delights the user.
The colorful ottomans do not have a rigid structure. Their shape is supported by knotting, which means they can use a lot of material that would have otherwise been sent to landfills.
