Industrial material waste is often discarded and causes irreparable damage to the environment, but Charlotte Kidger is aiming to find a new use for this waste in her latest collection of waste material objects. Known as 'Industrial Craft,' this new collection focuses on the polyurethane foam dust created in CNC fabrication and transforms it into colorful 3D objects. These waste material objects come in a series of pots and vessels, as well as in the form of two large sculptural tables.
The waste material objects crafted by Kidger are the result of extensive material exploration aimed at creating a recycled material that is durable and versatile. The process of shaping the foam dust gives it similar properties as wood and can easily be cut, sanded and engraved into unique designs.
