Great industrial design student work: Finding an “outlet” for bone waste
“In the meat industry in Switzerland, there are more than 230,000 tonnes of waste from slaughterhouses every year. I am looking into the recycling of food waste, in particular bones, which pollute by their disintegration , and thus make maximum use of animals. For me, bone is a forgotten and untapped material despite its many properties.”
“Elos is a range of switches and sockets using bone meal for its electrical insulation properties.”
“The socket is inspired by the articulation of the femoral head allowing the cable to be accompanied, thus avoiding wear and the organic shapes of the switches are inspired by the cutting of long bones.”
“Adding to the family, a cover variant combining a cable winder and a telephone charging station.”
Pretty creative use of hardware! Ghanmi is now a trendy industrial designer working for an interior design brand, and I hope he can convince them to use bone. I think the material is beautiful.
