Crafting Plastics – Vlasta Kubušová & Miroslav Král– (Germany)

Kingdom: Vegetabile.

//Description

“The cp! bioplastic was developed by the team of Prof. Pavel Alexy at Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. Compared to conventional bioplastics from 100% renewable resources, it performs uniquely well in daily use.

Research conducted during Master Studies at University of Arts in Berlin became an important source of understanding of consumer behavior towards “bio products”. General opinion about these products persists to be rather biased. They are still considered to be unappealing. Is it possible to trigger a change of heart of wide public? How about bringing a bio product to the market which would be seductive without harming our environment at the same time?

First collection of prototypes were released in 2016. Prototypes were developed from our unique material mixture of PLA and PHB, pressed into plate and subsequently shaped into desired shape using milling machine.” (Kubušová & Král, 2016)
