Plastic is with us from now to eternity: impervious to bacteria, acid, salt, rust, breakage and, in some cases, able to withstand heat. It is something of a miracle substance. One hundred years ago, when it was first invented, no one could have anticipated that plastic would present one of our biggest challenges.
Arts Co commissioned ten leading designers and design collectives to celebrate plastic through their work and look at ways to re-think our growing mountains of discarded plastic.
These ingenious creations will be on display at From Now To Eternity, an exhibition launching during the 2008 London Design Festival and continuing through Frieze Art Fair, at the Biscuit Building.
Designers include: Committee, Hiroko Shiratori, Rolf Sachs, Tomoko Azumi, Stuar Haygarth, Raw Edges, FAT, Tom Price, Troika, WOKmedia.
