Within our planet's current environmental crisis, creative re-use of previously wasteful materials is one of the most inspired design genres today. Up-Cycle! features more than 100 "up-cycled" solutions to design scenarios of every type which completely reinvent a wide array of materials and re-channel their basic qualities into inspired new projects from furniture to outdoor installations to clothing. Projects featured include Australian design studio Lightly's interception of used car tires that turns the tires into lounge chair furniture by crocheting around them in unique and colorful nylon patterns; a reinvention of discarded glass vases, jugs, bowls, and mugs into sculptural chandeliers by Utrecht-based designers Atelier Remy and Veenhuizen; Israeli-based Reddish Studio's reinvention of discarded chair, stool, and table legs into the base of new desk lamps and more.
