Erik de Laurens exhibited an unusual bunch of products from his Fish Feast collection. His work is derived from creating objects using a plastic material made only from fish scales. The plastic was creating by applying heat to the fish scales, making it a usable medium. The colored objects in his collection were created by dying the fish scales before the heating process. Due to this sustainable way of creating art, Erik de Laurens has been hailed and recognized for his green-friendly works.

Along with the scaley goggles, the Fish Feast collection also included beakers, glasses and even a water-dispenser made from leather derived from the fish scales.
