We are really enjoying these body surfing hand planes. Crafter using recycled milk bottles from foams' cafe in Ireland, each hand plane is beautifully unique.
What Foam. are saying:
The #wastetowaves handplane by foam. & OTHERS is made from the milk bottles used in our café. It is a circular design collaboration, using waste to create a unique and functional wave riding vehicle.
The making of each handplane helps 10 HDPE milk bottles find a new purpose. Every bottle used in foam is intercepted, cleaned, melted, molded and hand finished to create what you now hold. This entire process happens in the workshop at the back of foam’s cafe in Bundoran, Ireland. Read more about the process here.
Each plane is completely unique. The patterns on the deck and underside are a result of our hand-made process; combining different colours every time a new plane is melted and moulded.
