The time has come to use chemical waste for good like these ingenious designers did to create their recycled mirror design.
Amsterdam-based designers Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta from Studio Drift recently unveiled their recycled mirror design at Milan Design Week 2014. The super sleek and reflective mirror is designed from synthetic glass that was recycled from chemical waste. Aside from creating an architectural design masterpiece, the creative duo wanted to experiment and prove that synthetic obsidian -- the glass-like material made during the chemical waste process -- can be used for a flurry of things. What makes this material awesome is the fact that it's recycle and sustainable.
"Synthetic obsidian is a new raw material, which is completely transformed on a molecular level into a safe and beautiful material," says Gordijn. "Because the material is made of chemical waste we wanted to refer to the most pure of things, something that is the opposite of waste."
