Re-Crafting Plastics

Creating value from scrap! For our fabriktag 2022, we asked four renowned design studios to join us in re-crafting plastic waste. The task was to create upcycled design objects from BASF’s own industrial plastic waste. The idea behind the project: While plastic waste has become a global challenge, plastic itself is a valuable and durable material, which can serve a multitude of purposes. Thermoplastics can be very well recycled.

The BASF Creation Centers in Ludwigshafen, Yokohama, Shanghai, and Mumbai each selected a design studio from their country and asked them to create sculptural design objects that combine BASF upcycling materials with local heritage crafts in imaginative ways.

Here we show both the results and the creative minds behind them!

With Re-Crafting Plastics, we bring together different worlds and combine aspects which, at first glance, appear to be contradictory: globalization and local traditions; centuries-old craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology; plastic waste and sustainability; mass production materials and art pieces.”
