Table lamps, incense holders, magazine racks, key bowls, clocks, and bookends—all meticulously crafted from lemons and oranges sourced from the picturesque islands of Naples, along with coffee grounds sourced from the bustling bars of Milano.
Krill, a small-scale design company hailing from Italy, has made waves in the industry with its innovative approach to crafting furniture transforming food waste into 3D printing materials. Every kilogram of the unique printing material translates into a tangible reduction of one kilogram of potential carbon emissions lingering in landfills.
This initiative resonates with global goals, specifically aligning with the principles of Circular Economy and Sustainable Development Goal 12 — Responsible Consumption and Production. By diverting food waste from landfills and utilizing it for functional creations, the company actively contributes to reducing environmental impact. This approach transcends local boundaries; it epitomizes the interconnectedness of the design industry with global challenges.
