Design studio we+ launched its Link Project comprising of furniture made from discarded construction materials. The design goal is to create a better dialogue between humans and nature by revealing the beauty of natural materials throughout their lifecycle.
Link Project is part of the Smeba Ethical Design Thinking activities, which focuses on discarded building materials. Most of the materials used are rescued from building demolition sites and were deemed non-reusable. The project, therefore, explores the numerous design possibilities that exist, such as disassembling and reconstructing construction materials. This process also reduces construction waste by giving materials a new function. For example, Link Project has transformed discarded elements into furniture, such as shelves and stools, and wall surfaces.
