The chairs are made from recycled plastic taken from detergent containers and turned into unique pieces by Oiko Design Office. An unidentified mould found in a factory is this project’s inflection point. Oiko understands recycled plastic as a material with its own meaning, with a language that enters into the domestic sphere and its aesthetic code. They redesign and produce, but at the same time create an integral procedure that connects designer and operator, evoking the Arts and Crafts of William Morris.

In 2015, Jose F. López-Aguilar and Salva Codinach asked themselves: what should be a design studio in the 21st century? They both are industrial designers via ELISAVA. However, Jose focuses on environmental science (UAB) and on materials engineering with a doctorate at UPC and Salva goes towards business and industrial management at various business schools, becoming an invincible team.
They believe in matter as the basis of processes. OiKo also believe that people’s emotions are the best way to deal with great challenges and that the ecosystem is their home. Nothing without Nature, all thanks to Her. This is why OiKo believe in science. Being a designer today means taking science as the ground wire that allows us to always take the best steps.
