Design Student Alexsander Schul wins Ro Plastic Prize for recycled products
Alexsander Schul is a 2018 Design graduate of the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design.
The design category of the Ro Plastic Prize contest was set up by Milanese gallerist Rossana Orlandi, which challenged designers to develop new ways of recycling and reusing plastic.
The winning ‘Substantial furniture collection’ – comprising a chair, a lamp and a side table – is made entirely from recycled plastic using sheets of high-impact polystyrene. The designs are intended to be universal, practical and easily manufacturable on a large scale, using efficient production methods.
MAFAD Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design Alumnus Alexander Schul featured in The Washington Post and The China Post with his graduation work.
