The Moscow Design Museum invites everyone to visit the Fantastic Plastic exhibition at the New Tretyakov Gallery, West Wing (10 Krymsky Val). The exhibition is open until May 30.
“We have updated the exposition, added new exhibits and are waiting for everyone interested in design, circular economy, and environmental issues,” says Alexandra Sankova, director of the Moscow Design Museum.
The updated exhibition showcases new exhibits by the Italian company Kartell, Russian designers 99recycle, and the American manufacturer Green Toys.
In 2020, the Italian furniture company Kartell launched the Re-Сhair chair, the Componibili storage cabinet and the classic Mobil office cabinet, which became part of the Fantastic Plastic exhibition. All home furnishings by Kartell are sustainable. They are made from recycled thermoplastic technopolymer – a high-quality material that is durable and environmentally friendly.
99recycle is a brand from St. Petersburg, Russia. They recycle plastics and other types of waste into pieces of furniture and accessories - backpacks, bags, skateboards, and badges. The exhibition presents the multifunctional Eburet, which can be used as a stool, a magazine rack or a coffee table. It is 3D printed from recycled plastics. Another exhibit by 99recycle is the Yura chair.
Children's toys made from recycled plastic by the American company Green Toys are thought out in detail: they develop the imagination and motivate children to invent games themselves. The Fantastic Plastic exhibition features their toy boat designed with the principles of sustainable development in mind.
The exhibition is accompanied by an audio guide and a catalogue.
