Couch-19 & Coat-19
Environmental committed creations by the designer Tobia Zambotti
Couch-19 and Coat-19 are both made with light-blue masks collected from the streets of Reykjavík before they ended up in the ocean and, after being disinfected used as filler for the couch and coat.
The pouf has been shaped to recalls the aesthetics of an iceberg: one of the most iconic symbols of global warming.
The puffer jacket has been made in collaboration with Aleksi Saastamoinen, a fashion design student at Aalto university.
We overcome many difficulties
This famous Japanese artist is specialized in miniature dioramas and after the first lockdown he started playing around with surgical masks, the symbol of the pandemic, giving them a new function and meaning.

A ceiling of masks! 🌌🤩 Exists (in Camden, New Jersey) and the effect is amazing; Amanda Schachter & Alexander Levi from SLO architecture designed Turntable, a rotating public installation using thousands of two-liter soda bottles for the outer skin and 3-ply polypropylene face masks for the interior dome.
Take some time to have a look at this project, you won’t regret it!

This is what the public performance “no escape” by the landscape architect Chaosteria in collaboration with Xixi Zi and Xuegang Wang, is claiming!
The performance took place in Milano, in front of Duomo.
Here, the face masks are used to wrap the performer’s body and symbolize constrictions and restraint.
