A design collective that aims to build a sustainable future into the products they create and transform perceptions of waste materials in the process. Founded by designer and curator Sarah K in order to address and elevate the issues of sustainability in design and to focus on those creating original sustainable solutions in design thinking while still staying strong on aesthetics.
In 2010 Liane Rossler and Sarah K launched the first supercyclers project with their re-imagining of the most discarded and ugliest of waste, the single use plastic bag, turning these into delicate coloured vessels. The aim, which has become an important principle of supercyclers, was to make the discarded desirable again.
Since then supercyclers has evolved as both a platform for the profile and exhibition of works by designers from all over the world, who are raising the bar of sustainable solutions in design. and as an international design brand, producing works by a growing number of world class designers.
