crafting plastics! studio brings bioplastic into our day-to-day life. We experiment, produce and collaborate, while having the whole product's lifecycle in mind.

Realizing dynamic research and innovation in bioplastics and design, we provide base for interdisciplinary progress towards enjoyable sustainability and more transparent production. We explore new ways of developing products, from basic craft approach to high-tech machinery. Our pursuit is to be in full control of the lifespan of the product, from its origin – in the form of unrefined material - through the final product until its inevitable decay.

crafting plastics! studio was founded by product designer Vlasta Kubušová and production designer Miroslav Král.

Current team of cp!s: Vlasta Kubušová, Miroslav Král, Andreas Arnold, Mária Kadlecová, Filip Schwarz, Jürgen Löbner
