The ‘PhoneHome’ & 'MobileHome' phone stands are one of a series of products made using offcuts from the MAKERMARK workshop. This simple design is a great way to use materials that would otherwise be destined for waste. They are made using Valchromat; an environmentally friendly, non-toxic material made from recycled pine and mill waste. It’s solid colour is achieved through use of organic dyes.
The packaging follows the sustainable ethos and is made from recycled greyboard. Branding is screen printed on both sides and the product is attached using rubber cord with a simple knot to secure.
The product and packaging both share the same sustainable values and materials, these qualities combine for a pleasing package. A deconstruction of the MAKERMARK brand logo nods to the offcut nature of the product and together with the name gives it a playful identity.
