Toiture is an assembly of soles from Ouagadougou’s landfills. The soles are cleaned then cut with the help of simple templates. The tiles are assembled without additional material. The roof can be used as a shelter from the rain and the African sun. If every flip-flop in Ouagadougou’s landfills could be recovered, an area larger than 100’000m2, could be made every year.

Camioncyclette is the utility vehicle of the two-wheelers. With its radical approach, it re-defines the concept of mobility in the urban landscape.
No longer a bicycle equipped with baskets, it is a giant basket with the ability to move.

At the cross-road between industry and crafts, we have developed a process and a set of techniques allowing the transformation of waste plastic on a small scale.
The technology is similar to cotton candy. It transforms polypropylene wastes into a wool-like material that we call Polyfloss. It then allows the manufacture of new objects without requiring industrial tools and machineries.
Polyfloss objects can be multi-structural. One side side can be rigid and smooth while the other is soft and fluffy. These properties make the material great for a wide range of applications like packaging and insulation.
