Can City

I love a good, innovative method of production and when I saw this video I had to share it.

This video is created by Studio Swine and shows their mobile foundry making artistic furniture from recycled cans.

Being an environmental designer, I love it when someone comes up with a new way to make something out of a waste product and this is a fantastic piece of design that also incorporates waste cooking oil as the fuel. Shot in Sao Paulo as a tribute to the “catadores” (local people who recycle cans found in the street) it beautifully showcases a delightful concept.

I don’t know about you but I will be following Studio Swine with interest from now on.
