‘something old something new’ – toys by andrew duffy and craig tyler

UK designers andrew duffy and craig tyler of studio myfirst have sent in images of their latest project ‘something old something new’.

they constructed toys using their rotational moulding D.I.Y machine, replacing silicone moulds with vac formed food packaging waste and replaced polyurethane material with bio-resin with the help of canonbury arts.    the limited edition eco warrior toys are made from old packaging waste, discarded or broken  toys and a tiny amount of pixie dust (bio resin).

the project is on display as part of a 100% design, london.

  • OK?!

    it’s neither funny nor does it have to do anything with design!
