Brighton designers re-purposing local plastic waste

Brighton startup design studio Gomi have taken ‘non-reclyclable’ plastic waste from local Brighton businesses and developed a process to transform that waste into tech products – starting with these portable speakers. Each speaker is made up from the equivalent of approximately 100 plastic bags.

“We’re passionate about proving waste does not need to go to landfill or the ocean. Combining design, technology and traditional craft techniques we can sculpt material that is normally deemed ‘non-recyclable,’ and create innovations people can love and use in their home.” – Gomi founder, Tom Meades.

The company hopes to move into collaborations with other brands whose products could incorporate this individual and innovative design process.
