Lucy Williams

Hiya! Im Lucy (or Luce) Worked at Precious Pastic headquarters in Eindhoven as a surface designer on the Product design team for around 6 months. Originally from Leeds (UK) now based... nowhere! Some call me the off cut queen... I am a hoarder of acrylic waste from manufacturing companies, to schools! Through research and loooots of experimentation I have developed ways in which this material can be re-purposed back into a new sheet, without having to go through depolymerisation process which is a chemically complex process and takes ALOT of energy to break this down. (also the classic way of 'recycling' acrylic... boring! and costly!!! and bad for the world! poo!) Acrylic for one is EXPENSIVE AND BEAUTIFUL AND REFRACTS LIGHT IN ALL SORTS OF WAYS!! I know it isn't the main issue in the plastic world globally BUT theres A LOT of waste that we cant see behind the scenes in factories, studios, schools etc. It all started in my UNI noticing these offcuts lying around. Companies, schools, design studios end up with bits... I collected them!! Check out my vid on the website link below for more juicy info about acrylic:
