The press release from the "Offcuts to Masterpiece" exhibition -

"Exhibition curator and designer, Gigi Barker comments: “We wanted to explore alternative aesthetic connotations of 'recycled' design. Not limited by scale, these irregular cast offs are transformed into a variety of items for the home – from lighting to storage to seating – all presented in this thought-provoking exhibition in Alma's Whitechapel based factory.” The young designers have used a variety of techniques such as laser cutting, moulding and fringing to create their designs, challenging the paradigms of luxury.
