Battersea Power Station Presents: Woven Waste – A Second-Life Installation from a Regenerating Site
Battersea Power Station hosts a large-scale woven installation made from repurposed construction waste materials by Monica Cass of par-avion co. and Claire Potter Design, which highlights the sustainable management of construction waste on their Phase II site.
Battersea Power Station hosts a large-scale immersive installation by Monica Cass of par-avion co. and Claire Potter of Claire Potter Design. The two designers combine their eco-conscious design ethos to transform construction waste from the neighbouring Phase II site into an intricately woven structure, reminiscent of the handwoven seats from par-avion co.’s sustainable furniture range. The resulting piece acts as a commentary on the inevitable contribution of construction waste to our landfills and highlights the sustainable efforts of Mace Group (the primary contractor for Phase II) to reduce this impact with their ‘100% diversion from landfill’ commitment.
par-avion co.’s designs and finished products reflect a handmade quality that is unique to each piece, while being sensitive to the environment and surrounding landscape.
Claire Potter Design focuses on sustainable design via a circular economy, often highlighting global issues to create measurable change.
Monica and Claire discuss the impact of construction waste on landfills and the efforts of Mace Group’s sustainability team to combat this through a talk.
