Quilted Shades Made Of Old Billboard Material
Designer makes upcycled home furnishings from an unlikely source.
- 29 october 2010
Over 10,000 tons of material used to make billboards in the US is wasted annually, but architectural designer Nick Rebeck has now found a use for it. Rebeck is using this fabric, made from PVC-polyester, to make beautiful curtains that offer insulation against the cold, yet allow diffused natural light inside during the day. Another ingenious idea to reuse materials which are usually labeled as waste.
