Stackabl’s Collection for Mindy Solomon at design Miami

 

Stackabl, in partnership with the Mindy Solomon Gallery, presents its latest Baer Collection at Design Miami 2023 from December 6 to 10, highlighting sustainability and innovation. The collection addresses the staggering textile waste issue, which amounts to 17 million tons annually worldwide, with the United States ranking as one of the largest producers globally. Only a tiny fraction of these textiles are recycled, contributing significantly to landfills. However, recent environmental regulations in California are changing this by mandating brands to manage textile waste more responsibly. In response to these challenges, Stackabl transforms manufacturing waste into functional pieces through innovative technology. The Baer Collection, including an armchair, bench, chaise, and coffee table, pays tribute to Miami Beach’s historic Art Deco district and the legacy of Barbara Baer Capitan, a figure known for her preservation efforts. Inspired by the vibrant colors and bold designs of iconic 1930s and 1940s hotels, the pieces are formed from layers of recycled materials including post-consumer aluminum, 60% recycled PET, and leftover Merino wool felt for sound insulation.

Stackabl’s 2023 collection is a nod to a time and place

 

Collaborating closely with textile manufacturers near its Toronto studio, Stackabl (see more here) transforms waste into pieces of furniture, suitable for residential and commercial spaces alike. This process involves using proprietary technology to identify and repurpose manufacturers’ remnants, supporting local economies and reducing the carbon footprint. The collection showcases various furniture pieces characterized by clean lines, vivid colors, and intricate details. Stackabl’s 2023 collection for Mindy Solomon (more here) pays homage to the vibrant eras of America’s past, spanning from the roaring ’20s to the exuberant ’40s, particularly drawing from the influence of Art Deco, a movement, focused on craftsmanship and geometric designs. The Baer Collection, named in honor of the community activist and author Barbara Baer Capitan, reflects the iconic color schemes of hotels like Cardozo, Leslie, Marlin, Park Central, Tropic, and Waldorf Tower, constructed between 1937 and 1939. The series is entirely textile-centric, aiming to optimize factory offcuts and enhance comfort in its designs. This collection invites everyone to join in the mission to challenge conventional waste practices, aiming to divert 500 tons of textile waste from landfills by 2029.
