Sustainability and recycling are playing an increasingly important role today.

Under the theme of ReUse, concepts for returning used textiles to an industrial process have been developed in cooperation with the fibre producer Trevira.

The emphasis here was on avoiding

down-cycling textiles that accumulate


as waste and instead using them for products from the design and architecture sector by means of a high-quality processing of the material.

The resulting concepts sketch a possible sequence of the industrial process, verified by experimental models and implemented on a small scale. A small selection of the results can be seen below.
