Kingdom: Recuperavit.


Butts Bunny

Carolina Giorgiani (Italy), Jinan Jezzini (Romania), Davide Mosito (Italy).

A semi-translucent material with a certain degree of flexibility depending on the number of butts inside it. It can also be colored with different natural ingredients. The material aims to be a provocation for a different use of a huge problem: cigarette butts. Humans throw out 72 billion butts per year, and they represent, for example, the 40% of waste in the Mediterranean Sea. The resulting material is a contrast between the beauty of it and the repulsion provoked to some people when acknowledging the raw material.
