Graft by Qiyun Deng

Cutlery made from PLA encourages people to reconsider what they throw away.

ECAL graduate ’s Graft tableware targets our throw-away society and attempts to change a prevalent view of ‘disposable’ products. Cutlery made from polylactic acid (PLA), a biodegradable plastic derived from renewable resources such as plants, has the tactile features and forms of fruits and vegetables. Textures are reproduced with resin, functional components are 3D printed, and the two elements are ‘grafted’ together. The utensils remind users of the origins of the material and encourage us to think twice about throwing them away.
