3form Gets Greener with ReMix
3form is the producer of a series of translucent resin and glass materials that are embedded with color and textures which span a huge variety of aesthetics. Varia Ecoresin® is a collection of 40% pre-consumer recycled resin with interlayers containing organic materials, wood, color, modern elements and textures which can add life to any space. ReMix is their newest recycled resin creation which fuses recycled Varia Ecoresin® trim slices to create eclectic and unique panels.
Remix Green. Designed by 3form
ReMix is made from 78% pre-consumer recycled content and is offered at a discount from standard 1/2″ Varia Ecoresin. The nature of the recycling process means no two panels will be alike. ReMix is available in five color themes (green, blue, white, light natural and dark natural) and two pattern directions (vertical and horizontal.) By using panel edge trimmings, ReMix panels are an innovative approach to reducing manufacturing waste in landfills. The resulting ReMix panels have a woven feeling, and allow the designer to achieve diversity while saving money for the client. ReMix panels are helping 3form to close the loop with their own waste material. In addition, 3form has pledged to be carbon neutral by 2017.
3form was founded in 1991 with the goal to create a design driven material that would have minimal environmental impact. 3form allows designers to create their own palette, or draw from the existing collection which is colorful, wistful, and interactive material that can be used as a wall, ceiling or solely decorative element. Other collections by 3form include their 100% line of 100% post-consumer recycled high density polyethylene, and their Poured Glass Tile, which uses a similar concept to create elegant glass tiles with unusual design.
