ilVespaio and recycled plastic

We have built two plastic recycling machines to produce smalll objects made of recycled plastic. A shredder cuts plastic items into small flakes and an injection machine heats plastic flakes and injects them into a mould. We have built these two machines in collaboration with Politecnico di Milano following Precious Plastic blueprints. Precious Plastic is a global community which aims to create an alternative global plastic recycling system.

Play & Circle

Play&Circle is a playful installation about circular economy designed by ilVespaio. It’s a loop marble run, made of cardboard, showing the lifecycle of a t-shirt, a pack of spaghetti or any other product. Players have to move bottle caps along the track, overcoming obstacles and answering quiz to understand the environmental impact and the waste of resources of their choices. During the game, players will consume water, remove trees from the game board and produce waste and they will understand the carbon an water footprint of a product and of their daily habits. Play&Circle has been displayed for the first time at Salone della CSR and it’s perfect for educational paths with schools and event with children or adults.

ilVespaio and Tetra Pak

Promotional products made of pre-consumer discarded material provided by Tetra Pak Italia. Every object is made of one sheet of milk carton. The user can easily fold the sheet without tools or glue. The aim of the project is the reuse of discarded Tetra Brik Aseptic from the test and assembly factory in Modena.
