‘Waste Not Want It’

September 20, 2012

Furniture and art fabricated with materials from the Bloomberg recycle bin? For the third year, Bloomberg’s European headquarters in London is host to ‘Waste Not Want It’, specially commissioned furniture and art installations built from cables, boxes, keyboards, pallets and other Bloomberg waste.

Emerging international artists have reinvented these cast-offs into technically innovative and environmentally responsible works that are on display throughout the London office at Finsbury Square.

The ‘Waste Not Want It’ installations dramatically showcase the company’s commitment to sustainability while encouraging us to reconsider the very concept of office waste by transforming discarded materials into objects of beauty and purpose.

Watch the video showcasing the the 2011/12 work and hear from those responsible for the project:
