Marking a Colorful Garden Art Installation out of Recycled Bottles, Covestro is Fostering Circular Economy and CMF Design
The Colorful Garden Art Installation demonstrates the multiple colors, textures, different levels of transparency and gloss of Covestro PCR polycarbonates, and its high degree of design flexibility.
Covestro 2021-2022 CMF trend colors
“The Colorful Garden Art Installation shows Covestro's pursuit of circular design. We recycle around 200 Nongfu Spring water bottles and shaped them as a beautiful garden. We gave those wasted bottles a new design and lease on life.”
PCR (post-consumption recycling) materials drive circular economy
“We hope to use these 28 flowers full of design and creativity to show the beauty of the ‘circular’ to the world. Each flower not only demonstrates the value of recycling, but also shows the design flexibility of polycarbonate, reflecting our forecast CMF trend for automobiles, electronics and appliances in 2021-2022.”
- A new CMF sensory experience. The installation adopts new CMF aesthetic toolkits, which combines aesthetics with function and brings a new CMF sensory experience to designers.
- Closing the material loop drives the development of circular economy. The water bottles in the installation will be recycled after the tradeshow and turned into high-performance PCR materials, to be reused in automotive, electronics and appliance industries. All partners and society as a whole can benefit from this.
