This week we interview Scott Clear, the Chief Design & Innovation Officer at RKS Design. RKS, is a Los Angeles based design and innovation consultancy.
One of their recent projects consisted of creating an all new sustainable composite using excess tree pulp, something that had never been done before.

They molded the first batch of this material into guitars, to take advantage of the wood-like qualities that it offers.

On this episode, Scott joins me to talk about this project using THRIVE, a new class of thermoplastic composites. THRIVE composites use cellulose fibers to reinforce various plastics, allowing customers to bypass many of the current challenges with conventional fiber-reinforced composites like fiberglass.
