Other People’s Rubbish

April 7th, 2011 by retail design blog

Heath Nash’s delicate work demonstrates the possibility of taking reused discarded plastic to a sophisticated level.

The range is called ‘other people’s rubbish’. It was intended as a possible form of future upliftment for a country in desperate need of employment opportunities, and as a way to promote the idea of recycling to a very unaware South African public.

By using the right materials and knowledge – wire and plastic – combined with typically South African skills and contemporary design, a new aesthetic was created which really spoke to the then current South African situation.

The leafball was the first product Heath Nash designed using other people’s trash.

Most of the following products were made using the same basic system of wire construction as the leafball (many hand-bent wire units, with hand-creased ‘leaves’ attached are built into different forms using cable ties).
