daniel lev coleman showcases his lintite collection for milan design week

 

milan design week 2017: after creating his first prototype of the lintite chair, industrial designer daniel lev coleman has recently showcased a more refined and extended version by introducing a table and stool. the collection includes a composite material made of dryer lint and concrete, which the designer soon hopes would reduce the unfathomable amount of fabric waste that ends up in landfills every year — let alone in the U.S.

this collection is branded under mend, a studio founded by coleman in 2017 after creating his first lintite chair. there, he will continue to develop tomorrow’s products from yesterday’s trash and, with further refinements, hopefully bring lintite to the market by 2018.

  • this composit is the very opposite than sustainable: lint consists of a mixture of fibres including several synthetic polyester and other fibres. together with concrete you only conserve the plastics for future genarations and make it impossible to recycle them. this really can´t be a solution.

  • I really love the ideal, I am big into concrete and the chair with the small back is my favorite. That was a lot of work, thanks for the great post.
