Industrial Designer Shujan Bertrand, founder of Aplat, creates sustainable products and practices that embrace the simplicity of nature and inspire positive change.
Aplat is a thoughtful zero-waste design collection for food, wine, and the garden. Committed to a circular design process, Aplat is changing the way we live at home and changing the way our industry manufactures. Shu uses the art of origami principles and the golden ratio to inform and inspire new ways to design and reduce pre-consumer waste in cut-sew factories. Aplat’s zero waste designs are plastic-free, elastic-free, and metal-free. 100% organic cotton, upcycled fibers, 100% biodegradable, and carefully made in San Francisco.
