It’s lightweight, colourful and can be regenerated from scrap.  Gone are the old ways and now plastic really is fantastic – often recyclable and made in a nil-waste process.

No longer do we associate plastic with all things cheap, thanks in part to Philippe Starck, who created our love of the ‘Ghost’, and in part to our obsession recycled materials.  Plastic was previously scorned for its crude use at the birth of its history, but we are now redeeming our past mistakes by a current appreciation of just how sustainable and versatile this medium really is.
