Trash cube by Nicolas Le Moigne
Published on August 12, 2012
The swiss designer Nicolas Le Moigne has collaborated with Fiber Cement company, eternit to create ‘Trash cubes’ a project that uses raw, recycled material to produce new stools. Measuring 31cm x 31cm x 36cm the stools which use left over cement and fibers produced by eternit were designed to have the most basic form while using as many scraps as possible. Each piece goes through a metamorphic stage where the raw material is condensed and sculpted to the mold. While the overall shape remains relatively unchanged, the cubes are all unique, changing in appearance depending on how the discarded material settles.
