Commissioned for Bloomberg Philanthropy by art and design agency Arts Co, ‘Waste Not, Want It’ is a series of specially commissioned art and design projects made almost entirely out of Bloomberg’s waste and presented as part of the 2011 London Design Festival. Design studio Loop.pH’s ‘Faraday Curtain’ is made from hundreds of meters of discarded electrical cable, stripped of its inner core and conductive shielding and re-threaded into an intricately laced textile mesh. The resultant ephemeral textile enclosure has a soft and sheer surface that shields the interior space from electromagnetic fields.
