Bjorn Holm talks a little bit about his project RETO (In case you missed it, be sure to check out the video):
“This project has taken me four months. It’s been a long process, but I have had so much fun! I decided to make a fish since the sweetest line I have ever got was on a this style of board. I just really like the way they feel under my feet. This board in particular is 100% old, recycled skateboards. There are no other materials in it. I was very picky about that.
I actually knew right away that I wanted to work with recycled skateboards. It has always been a really interesting and wonderful piece of material in my point of view to work with.
And I knew it was going to be hard to work with because of the fact that there are no straight lines in a skateboard.
I have saved all the materials and small pieces that came from this process, and I’m gonna use it in my next project. I have not decided what to make yet, but I can tell you that I am thinking about it all the time!”
