designing with waste

Hangers
Today I began to layout the cut sheet for the rockingstool and realised how much waste was about to come. So my immediate reaction was to "design with waste". As I only had about half an hour before my place on the CNC was up I had to quickly create some designs that would fit within the wasted material sections. Not only did I want to save the environment but being a student I couldn't bare to see my own money being wasted. 
The plan was to create a range of everyday user products that have a bit of fun applied to them, I think that I may of been enjoying type today. The hanger is the first of many things to come, as the development for the rockingstool is still underway.
Stay tuned to see some more products to come from "designing with waste".
