Design Transfigured/Waste Reimagined

Organized by Georgetown University in Washington DC and commissioned by guest curators c2-curatorsquared we have been working on the exhibition design of Design Transfigured/Waste Reimagined. This exhibition shows a fresh approach to addressing the current state of our depleted and polluted environment; an extreme and inventive kind of upcycling.

In line with the exhibition theme we partnered with Kvadrat and used their Solid Textile Board (Really.) as the main material for our design. Really. is made from end-of-life cotton and wool textiles as these are typically downgraded in existing recycling processes.

Over 40 works by 30 pioneering international designers and studios from Asia, Latin America, and Europe are being presented. Waste is overtaking natural resources, but these designers and studios consider it a resource to reclaim and radically transform into useful products, providing a new direction in design.

Opening: October 2nd at 16.00h
Until: December 15th 2019

Next exhibition venue: Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Arizona, USA – February 1st until May 24th 2020
