Somebody’s waste could be the raw material for others; Guma puts this statement into action. The project employs the desertion of something as common as tires, in order to generate new objects that stand out for their design, strength, durability, and cost. Therefore, Guma reduces the environmental impact of waste, whilst presenting new approaches to post-consumer design.
