Not all of the amazing things to see at ICFF this year were from professional designers. A popular hangout spot was Recyclable Composites, the booth of the furniture design students from the Rhode Island School of Design. From Jennifer: “Recyclable Composites, an exhibit by the students of the department of furniture design at RISD was a clear favorite stop at ICFF. Students were instructed to use Twintex, a commingled glass and thermoplastic polypropylene fiber filament to create a furniture or lighting fixture. These explorations push the boundaries of both design and the customary use for this product. Twintex is a recyclable product making the use sustainable.” Follow RISD on Twitter.
