Suboptimal Materials are by-products, or so-called waste, derived from dymPRODUCTS' work and staff's lifestyles. They include, but are not limited to, materials that are:
1 hard to recycle efficiently, e.g. through municipal services;
2 hard or impossible to recycle at all;
3 in awkward, inconsistent configurations;
4 in awkward, inconsistent quantities;
5 worn out or weak therefore difficult to transform into something structural;
6 worn out or ugly therefore difficult to transform into something beautiful;
7 embarrassing or maybe just not enjoyable for us to use.
With extensive hand labor, over the course of several years, we have created a number of products using Suboptimal Materials.
Our larger goal, however, is to transform these materials into new "raw" materials. To date, Suboptimal Materials have proven resistant to our manipulations. Undeterred by these setbacks, we consider these failures provisional and see them as encouragement to re-double our efforts. We are currently extending our research into industrial processes.
