ATLAS:Material Life Cycle / Material Cycle Library

ATLAS:Material Life Cycle
ATLAS:Material Life Cycle

Most of the trash that exists in this world comes from the designers' hands.
However, designers do not know how the materials they use affect the environment.
Created a library of 45 materials that designers frequently use and tell you how they are made, how they are discarded, processed, or recycled.
This material library is designed to enhance product designers' expertise and raise awareness of the material environment. First, it was roughly classified by material (plastic, fiber, leather, wood, metal, ceramic), and it was also produced by adding information related to the post-processing of wood and metal materials.
