supercyclers was founded by designer and curator Sarah K in order to address and elevate the issues of sustainability in design. supercyclers focuses attention on those creating original sustainable solutions in design thinking while staying strong on aesthetics.
In 2011 Liane Rossler and Sarah K launched the first supercyclers project with their re imagining of the most discarded and ugliest of waste, the single use plastic bag, turning these into delicate coloured vessels. The aim, which has become an important principle of supercyclers, was to make the discarded desirable again. The vessels were presented alongside Mark Vaarwerk's unexpanded polystyrene works in Milan at Ventura Lambrate...
Since then supercyclers has evolved as both a platform for the profile and exhibition of works by designers from all over the world, who are raising the bar of sustainable solutions in design. and as an international design brand, producing works by a growing number of world class designers.
"As designers we are trained as problem solvers, so it should be our job to address the biggest problems. The environmental issues of today have largely been caused by a lack of foresight, by seeing the solution without seeing the solution's impact.
supercyclers wants to contribute to our thinking altering so that every design solution has the future built into it in some innovative and engaging way, and so that it's sustainability goes without saying"
