Rethinking Plastic shows products and projects by designers from all over the world who have approached the plastic crisis as a design challenge.

Rethinking Plastic, design with a mission

Room for change
Suzanne Jongmans

25 designers and companies present their innovative designs to challenge the status quo on plastics. Each product or project on display takes a unique approach to the plastic challenge, from bio-based packaging alternatives to recycled plastic toys and design furniture.

‘Rethinking plastic: design with a mission’ is an update of the exhibition that was briefly shown at Yksi Expo during the World Ocean Day last June, in collaboration with Searious Business and the Dutch Design Foundation. The website displays an extensive gallery of projects and products. The participating designers show that it is possible with creativity and courage to reconsider and rebuild our relationship with plastic. To ultimately leave a cleaner planet for future generations.


Yksi Expo

Yksi Expo is a platform that brings Dutch Design, technology, architecture and other creative disciplines together, with the emphasis on social design, sustainability and circular design. In the beautiful, industrial space of no less than 600 m2 in the very heart of Strijp-S, Leonne Cuppen (Yksi Connect) has her office, but also there are work spaces for (young) designers who provide constantly changing and innovative projects and presentations.
