Kimberly Markel’s “Glow Chairs” are made from reclaimed plastics which are unable to be recycled, such as eyeglass lenses and frames as well as plastics whose recyclability has been exhausted.    Markel has won several design awards for this work since their premiere at the Architectural Digest Show in NYC this past March.   Markel logged four years working in environmental and public policy in D.C., Baltimore, and Rhode Island. "I liked working in policy," says the 31-year-old Markel, who studied the subject at Carnegie Mellon.  "But I thought I would love to be in a world where things are made and there is art and design around."   Soon she was working in a foundry in upstate NY where she was fabricating works for Jeff Koons, Matthew Barney, and Frank Stella.
