Upcycled Broken

This design phenomenon sees an update with shattered aesthetics

Implications - The art of taking found objects and turning them into something completely new has been perfected by members of the DIY behavioral tribe. This aesthetic phenomenon sees an update with upcycled broken. Instead of giving old products a makeover, upcyclers are purposely seeking flawed materials, incorporating their brokenness into the design and satisfying the need for truly unique pieces.
