About this year’s edition of recycling- design festival “Przetwory”: “R’ kids! Somehow many of the designers who cooperate with us and appear in every edition of Recyclings recently became parents.

We ran a design workshop for children. They were given a few simple tasks in which they were to solve a certain problem using every-day materials such as strings or sticks etc. Among the planned activities were tasks such as ‘move’, ‘pass around’ and ‘paint’.

A suit that will make you fly. What happens when you combine an ordinary suit with a hot-air balloon? You can fight gravity, that’s what! Our baloon-suit is made of paper and can carry about 10kg, which really makes you feel lighter. The idea was to make long steps with it- like walking on the moon. Height: 6 m.
“Jan Lutyk and Stanisław Czarnocki came second with their design of a sofa made of balloons.
