A RUBBISH STOOL

$1,900.00 Enquire

A Rubbish Stool is made from 100% waste Polystyrene, utilising a pre-existing recycling process.

Expanded Polystyrene is chipped, heated and compressed, removing the air to form a polystyrene extrusion. Reducing the material to 3-5% of its original volume. The extrusion is then moulded into shape and left to cool.

A Rubbish Stool captures value from waste, realising the potential of existing recycling processes.

Trimble’s work explores materiality and process within a localised context. Focusing on the sustainable potential of alternative means of production.
