Plastic waste is being converted into filaments used to 3D print unique furniture and objects. Supernovas, a recently launched London and Milan-based circular design and lifestyle company, has shown that PET plastic waste from recycled bottles and product packaging can be transformed into recycled and recyclable products that are not only sustainable but also beautiful.
