Scrap Knobs

Scrap Knobs is a materials experimentation with common household waste—stale coffee and water bottles— to create a series of polyhedron cabinet pulls. Coffee grounds are often incorrectly disposed of and end up in the landfill, while plastic scraps need to go through an energy intensive process before being recyclable. I offered an alternative to these common fates and developed a plan to keep this waste in the household by binding it with Ecopoxy resin and into a durable material. I plan to expand the result of this project into small home goods. My main philosophy for this project was to accentuate the scrap material rather than hide it.
