LeftOver equals Game Over?
LeftOver deals with the issue of industrial mass produced leather waste which is usually disposed. A first solution was based on the idea of a sustainable system which is capable of connecting leather without using any glue or stitching. This way parts stay exchangeable. Developing a punching size that increases waste I shoose a shape that perfectly matched itself while circulating it in a 180 dagree angle. The single parts are connected by binding them through small slots. Because of the different outline of the original leftovers it is still difficult to recycel the complete input. In a second step called LeftOver≠Game Over I looked for a solution to not waste anything at all. With an ecological glue mixture leather particels were transformed to a new connected surface. This way the final result became not only a recycling but also a zero waste product. Both can be applied as interrior, accessory or processed to garments.
