we are currently working with a new material we named Renet.
Renet is made out of recovered plastics. Through thermo-fusion techniques we combine discard plastic nets from food and construction industries with silo-bags recovered from the agro world. Pressure and temperature merge these materials generating a new unique pattern sheet,
resistant, light, waterproof. Let's Make Trash Becomes Treasures.
RENET NEW YORK
The key material is the “safety net” used in construction sites at New York City.
The high visibility orange safety net is highly symbolic and an important part of newyorkers identity.It frames the skyline, protects and dyes the uncontable real state projects in the city.
This net is discarded in huge quantities, it is not recycled due to it´s complex composition. It final destination is landfils. We envision another destiny. Let's Save the Net.
The "essentials" string along with the users in their urban daily shifting. Each product arise as a solution to a specific carrying need. Safe transport for technology , shopping, moves and more miscellany of the non-stop nomad movement. It is constructed with non conventional materials,discards, and other findings that work a poetic winks for the user.
The key material is the "shading netting" commonly used for sun protection in outdoor spaces. The idea is to resignificate this material, transferring it from one world to another, taking advantage of its remarkable properties; resistence, lightness and very easy to clean.
Embrodery techniques, assembly and stiches combine materials from diverse origin to create Argenta Vedette. This piece tryes to be an identity symbol, Portable fragment of Argentina.
Made out of recovered taylor garments. Each product is the result of deconstruction, experimentation, rehearsal and play. Tailoring functions as aesthetical and conceptual trigger, suggesting a way of slow production that pays attention to each piece and specializes in handmade textil collage. The result are unique pieces that dialogue between tailoring and leather goods, artisanal and industrial, transport, humor and style.
