It takes an innovative eye to sense aesthetics in trash and create brand new homeware from regular waste. A startup, called Pentatonic, has launched a range of flat-packed, modular furniture that’s fabricated entirely from food, electrical, plastic and textile waste, an initiative that attempts to transform a growing “consumption culture.”

Jamie Hall and Johann Boedecker, who lead the company, opine that the products we consume need to come at the cost of sustainability, writes Dezeen.

The company also offers a lifetime buyback guarantee to its customers, a model that allows it to source its old products and simply recycle them to reduce waste while incentivizing the consumer, notes Design Curial.
