Recycled design is more beautiful than it’s ever been

Read the full story from Fast Company.

It’s rare that a Bluetooth speaker is truly distinctive. After all, it’s just a box with some holes. There’s only so much you can do! But the Gomi speaker is unusually gorgeous. It looks like the whole plastic box has been dipped into the swirling colors used to create marble paper.

In fact, the Gomi Speaker isn’t a product of painting at all. It’s actually produced by hand in Brighton, in the U.K., out of unrecyclable plastic that gets rejected by most recycling facilities. Each speaker is made of 100 plastic bags that are melted and squished together to create a high-tech, artisan product, instead of ending up in oceans or landfills. It’s part of a new wave of recycled plastic products that aren’t just as goodas products made from virgin plastics–but notably more desirable. Bespoke. Beautiful. And a buoy for the environment.
