Design students exhibit at Dutch Design Week

PLLANT is a collaborative design group involving young designers from the University of Lincoln’s BA (Hons) Product Design and BA (Hons) Jewellery and Object programmes as well as design students from the UK universities of Plymouth, Loughborough and Nottingham Trent University.

The group concentrates on the Upcycling of waste material to create a range of innovative and enhanced outcomes. The project is supported by Co-oproduct, and will showcase work internationally at major design festivals and events throughout the coming months, starting with the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven next week.

The 17 jewellery pieces designed by 9 current students meets the PLLANT-brief of upcycling.  The students used materials that are considered to be waste, and turned them into desirable bracelets.  The images above show what can be done with upcycled Nespresso capsules; the Capsule Collection is by Caroline Draper.
