The Eco Cube pavilion is an example of how beautiful creations can be achieved using renewable and recycling materials. The wall panelling has 43% recycled contents (Marmoleum). All materials in this stand will be re-used, recycled or up-cycled. The wood structure will be given to a joinery association and Upcircle will be re-using the remaining material on future projects. Even the metal fences have been borrowed from the sponsors, and will go back to a building site. The Eco Cube will not be creating any waste at the end of London Design Festival.
The Eco Cube pavilion was an example of how beautiful creations can be achieved using renewable and recycling materials. The wall panelling had 43% recycled contents (Marmoleum). All materials used in the stand was re-used, recycled or up-cycled. The wood structure was used to build another Upcircle project for the same community, Pop Brixton. Even the metal fences were been borrowed from sponsors, and went back to a building site.
The principles of Circular Economy are the pillars for Upcircle to design the future, preserving and re-using materials and waste, as well as collaborating with other organizations to create joint value.
