Experiential Design by Nicole Blue, Creative Director & Founder of Wasted LA

Tech capsule by Annabelle Azadé

US EXCLUSIVITY: Maartje Dijkstra will be exhibiting for the first time in the United States! She is a Dutch fashion designer, based in Rotterdam NL. In 2005 she worked at Alexander McQueen in London, where her interest in High fashion developed. She started her own High fashion label where she designs sculptural and individualistic fashion collections, accessories and single statement objects with the use of progressive technologies, like manual 3D printing. The designs are all hand crafted and unique, designed with the future in mind.

 The "Take Out Jacket" by Nicole Blue is made out of approximately 40 used plastic take-out food bags. All the bags were variations of the classic "Thank You" take out bag. It's lined with silk scraps collected from end cuts of fabric rolls and stuffed with feathers taken from a discarded down comforter found on the street. It was designed to look and feel like a typical puffer jacket but made out of upcycled materials; materials that would typically end up in a landfill or polluting the oceans. This jacket dares the public to take a critical look at speciesism and the waste that they usually discard without a second thought.

 The SMOG FREE PROJECT is a series of urban innovations led by Daan Roosegaarde to show the beauty of clean air. As a tangible souvenir, Roosegaarde creates SMOG FREE RINGS made from the compressed smog particles collected from the smog free tower. By sharing the SMOG FREE RING you donate a 1000 m3 of clean air to the city. It contains smog collected from Beijing and Rotterdam and is handmade at Studio Roosegaarde.  SMOG FREE RING  is part of the art collection of Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, but also as engagement or wedding ring by couples all over the world.
