DESIGN | Michelle Brand’s Unique Petal Power


We’ve featured the wonders of recycled water bottles as art before, but this cascading fabric designed by British artist Michelle Brand truly mesmerizes me. The inspiration for these plastic petals were found at the bottom of a bottle–literally. Turn your empty Dasani bottle upside down and voila–a botanically inspired base. Michelle cuts, sands, and strings together recycled bottles to create this light catching fabric. Which goes to prove you can find beauty in the most unexpected, mundane places.
