ECOTEXTILE CITEDesign for ECOTEXTILE, recycling bank for second-hand clothes
Designed to encourage inner-city textile recycling by means of collection points. Research concentrated on the elements that were likely to make the act easier and more appealing and ensure its integration within the urban landscape. Its purpose is revealed by its dynamic folding form. Thanks to an in-depth study of ergonomics, accessibility, safety and information, the object becomes an item of street furniture rather than a mere container.
Clothes banks are environmentally friendly as they avoid the pollution caused by incineration. They enable clothes to be reused or recycled following the collection and sorting process, which implies ecological commitment and involvement.
