Levi's Jeans Retire from Legs to Walls

Earlier today, we posted about a pavilion built from outdated Speedos. Last week, Cool Hunting spotlighted a similar effort on the part of Levi Strauss & Co., which used recycled denim to insulate their renovated San Francisco headquarters. Throughout the building, as a testimony to the innovative nature of its construction materials, designers installed plexiglass windows that reveal the denim underneath the surface. The Academy of
