The Pile is an installation design concept derived from the usage of plastic in female hygiene products. The project aims to metaphorically represent the load of trash that is collected as part of the usage of female hygiene products and begins to create a space for conversation and discussion on the possible alternative products to plastic. Each module of the design is hand made and the form is inspired by the shape of a sanitary pad. The modules are attached to each other to create a variety of spaces that provides an interactive environment. They are connected in such a manner that they can be dismantled and remade on another site.
