Rubber Impact Project
by Mandana MacPherson and Gigi Obrecht

David Hisaya Asari

The Rubber Impact Project aims to disrupt the bicycle inner-tube waste stream in San Francisco and beyond.

This rhizome-like project takes a unique, broad-based approach to sustainability by collectively harnessing various levels of design – data, technologies, products, experiences, systems and implications – to blend inspired design and human interaction to facilitate needed systemic change.

The result is an innovative, reproducible nodal network that leverages a community’s existing opportunities so as to facilitate increased sustainability. Inner tube rubber is an industrial skin with its own particular properties.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable design category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
