DANISH STUDENT CREATES KITCHEN MODULE USING ECO BY COSENTINO
September 14, 2012
While working on his thesis at Kolding School of Design, Tobias Tostesen of Denmark has created a kitchen module using ECO by Cosentino in Black Forest, a recycled countertop surface that is made of 75 percent recycled ingredients using a variety of glass and porcelain mixed with a corn-based resin. The module uses no screws and nails and can easily be dismantled and moved around.
The goal for the project was to identify the relationship between man and material and reach a kitchen solution with strong core values:
-Honesty in design and materials
-Space for handling of raw materials
-Openness and lightness
Tobias chose to use ECO by Cosentino because of how the recycled materials create a new, useable product. Cosentino upcycles products that have reached the end of their lifecycle– meaning that they cannot be incorporated in to any other industrial product and would otherwise collect in landfill sites.
