Case

From sofa cut out to children shoes

Muuto is a worldwide design company specializing in the Scandinavian design tradition. When Muuto design sofas, leather scraps in different sizes and lots will occur. These leather scraps still have huge potential. A potential that children’s shoe developer Pyk Copenhagen has managed to unleash in collaboration with THE UPCYCL. Their collaboration has resulted in the design of a children shoe that soon will hit the market. 

Muuto and Pyk Copenhagen were put together through THE UPCYCL’s platform, making it easier for companies to get their waste materials exposed. It can be difficult to find each other’s waste materials if you operate in different industries. And even harder to have an overview of what opportunities there are for the utilization of your waste materials. This is an obstacle which THE UPCYCL’s platform helps to overcome.
