Kevin Cunningham, a surfboard-shaper based in Rhode Island, has embarked on a project to create a series of boards from trash he finds washed up on the beach. Over the years the surf industry has dipped it’s toes into sustainable board design but this project is downright audacious. Drift wood and plastic will become the skin and ropes; fishing nets will act to strengthen the board; and plastics (bags and sheets) will be pressed and formed into fins. The boards will be both art and functional water craft. Initially they will be shown in galleries around the country . . . hopefully after they have been put through the paces in the ocean.
The culmination of months of design, photography, and development have been assembled together and launched onto the information superhighway….and its name – Neela Bags.
Bottled water is the new Hummer. Environmentalists are focusing in on the industry, restaurants are banning it, and the biggest brands are owned by multi-national corporations. But is the industry all bad?
At 2 Out Of Three our desire for aesthetically pleasing and functional design extends outside our computer monitors and into the world around us. More specifically it extends into the building that surrounds us as our we recently completed a bathroom remodel.
