In the field of design, activities to develop form, application materials, production processes and product functions lead to eco-design, which is an opportunity to use urban waste for supporting daily human activities and aesthetic values, reducing dependence on nature and also conserving resources. The various wastes experimented with were office paper, plastic packaging, paper packaging, dry leaves, plastic bags and a mix of them. Numerous experimental steps were taken to produce aesthetic elements by utilising these wastes as prime material. A systematic procedure was applied and using aesthetic elements, an aesthetic board was made. It was seen that there is a possibility to create Indonesian ornamental patterns with these wastes. The results show that urban wastes have great potential as material for aesthetic elements of interior design. This study was conducted on the basis of the culture, natural resources and social behaviour of Indonesia as an agrarian country.
Keywords: Urban waste, alternative material, aesthetic element, interior design, Indonesian ornament.
