We engineer and fabricate our own versions of industrial manufacturing machines to allow us to experiment with materials typically unavailable to designers. We make and modify plastic extruders, injection molders, rotational molding, compression molds, and more - developing an expertise and authorship in the entire making process.
Much of our work involves post-consumer, hand-recycled high density polyethylene plastic from Detroit, Michigan. Post- consumer HDPE is typically mixed together to create a tough grayish plastic used in industrial capacities. By sorting and processing these plastics manually, we can utilize the full spectrum of bright colors. Folgers Coffee reds, Arm and Hammer yellows, Downy light blues....
