At Springwise, we have featured a number of this year’s winners of the James Dyson award, an annual competition highlighting the work of designers and engineers from around the world who think differently. For example, one winner in Dublin created a new sustainable concept shoe that allows wearers to customise, repair and recycle their footwear. Another winner is a designer from Mexico who created a low-cost solar-powered water purifier. Now, Pontus Törnqvist from Lund University, Sweden, has designed Potato Plastic, a biodegradable material made of potato starch and water.
