Which is more sustainable?
Are we making something from biodegradable waste, or are we reinterpreting some raw material that is more difficult to neutralize industrially? The key is to combine recycling and everyday functionality so that the process has the smallest possible ecological footprint.

According to Ágnes Elek's education, she is a textile artist, but basically, we can see furniture and jewellery collections from her, in which textiles appear as a functional, recycled raw material. With the choice of materials, sustainability and the ever-changing fashion are treated in several ways: paper-based jewellery is almost 100% compostable or just recyclable as paper, so it doesn’t burden the environment at the end of its life cycle.

The other group of objects - as a continuation of his previous work called “Spread, Spread My Table” - are furniture made of uniquely designed, durable hardwood on the one hand, and specially made textiles from used bicycle interiors on the other.
