In his project "Crafting Plastic," Danish designer Kasper Kyster challenges the very perception of everyday materials.

During the vibrant 3daysofdesign festival in Copenhagen, Kyster unveiled his first solo exhibition at Officinet in Bredgade 66. This showcase highlights his approach, using transparent plastic tubes to create a variety of domestic furniture. His collection pushes the boundaries of modern craftsmanship, transforming industrial materials into artful expressions.

Kyster dreams of bridging industrial design and art, creating pieces that inspire new ideas. "My dream is that my practice can include both worlds," Kyster explains. This vision is evident in "Crafting Plastic," which challenges perceptions of plastic by showcasing its potential in design. Using a technique, Kyster manipulates transparent plastic tubes to create chairs, lighting, stools, and benches, forcing a reconsideration of this ubiquitous material.

Central to Kyster's philosophy is the belief in quality and simplicity. "I think the world needs more quality," he states. "Quality takes time to develop. Time is quality." He advocates for a design process that prioritizes thoughtful and intuitive solutions over quick fixes. Kyster's designs are easily understood, both in construction and functionality. "People should be able to understand my design, how it's made and how it's put together," he emphasizes. This transparency is mirrored in the visible structure of the plastic tubes.
