Garment-to-garment recycling system wins design innovation award
The Hong Kong Research and Development Center for Textiles and Garments (HKRITA) has developed a “garment-to-garment” (G2G) mini production line to recycle post-consumer garments into clean and wearable clothes, and Has been recognized by FastCompany’s 2019 Innovation by Design Awards.
Innovation by Design celebrates creative work at the intersection of design, business and innovation, and HKRITA won the award in the Retail Environments category recognized.
The “Garment to Garment System” (G2G) display is condensed into a 40-foot standard container, which is placed in the retail store of TheMills. The Mills is a comprehensive building that activates art and culture. It is located in Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong. It was formerly the former “Nan Fung Cotton Mill” that has been renovated three times. The event display cabinet is made of double-glazed walls that protect the retail space and isolate the noise generated during the recycling process. The earthquake- and dust-resistant design also minimizes disruption to nearby businesses.
Visitors can freely walk around the container house, view the operation of each component within the system, and review the complete G2G operation process. They can even deepen their environmental experience by recycling their own old clothes.
This system is completed with the full support of TheMills and a tripartite cooperation between HKRITA, H&M Foundation and Novetex Textiles Limited.
HKRITA CEO Edwin Keh said: The G2G system brings recycling into life. Our old clothes can be used as raw material for new clothes. We are delighted to receive this accolade as it is the third global design and innovation award this year for this project.
FastCompany editors and writers spend a year researching and reviewing each applicant for this award. The number of applications submitted this year was the most competitive ever, with more than 4,300 entrants – and winners, including Nike, Microsoft, and MasterCard.
“Garments to Garments Recycling System” (G2G) opened in September 2018. This production line was named the winner at the “47th International Exhibition of Inventions”. It stood out from more than 5,500 products from 55 countries and won the “Red Dot Award”: “Product Design 2019”. in recognition of its high quality design.
