Hooke park - aa school
Follwing an invitation from students of the AA, we tested the properties of our fibers, and validated its potential for heat insulation. We then found a local recycling partner to get 1 ton of waste plastic, that the students then turned into Polyfloss wool and placed in the wall cavities.
Hooke Park is a campus of the AA school of Architecture, in Dorset (south of England), where Master students have to design and build a house. The specific project the students wanted to make was to use only reclaimed or recycled material. The insulation was made with Polyfloss

edinburgh science festival
The Edinburgh Science Festival invited us to design and build a series of machine based on The Polyfloss technology for educational purpose. The set was composed of a manual shredder, a Polyfloss machine and a molding press with aluminium molds and a cooling system. This allowed children to bring their waste and transform it into small rulers, they could take home afterward.
Following the invitation from the Edinburgh Science Festival, extensive development and building had to be made, in order to enhance the process, protect the users and make the different steps of the transformation understandable. Following the first 3 week festival, the Science Festival bought the machine and sold the workshop to different other Science Festivals in Abu Dhabi and Shangai.
We would like to thank the Edinburgh Science Festival team for their trust and interest.
The financial information group Bloomberg invited us to visit their waste recycling plant to find interesting waste. We decided to use 500 keyboards, take out the plastic parts and make an installation of big cubic pixels in their lobby.
Bloomberg is highly involved in the recycling of their products, namely the computers, keyboards and screens they provide to their clients. Each year, a program called Waste Not Want It, invites a series of designers and artists to use their waste to make artistic installations in their headquarters in London.
We would like to thank Bloomberg and the organizing firm ArtsCo, for their support.
