The sofas exhibited in the special showcase ‘What is upcycling?’ from IFFT/Interior Lifestyle Living 2019.
In contrast to “recycling”, which reuses waste as raw materials and an energy source and “reuse”, which means changing the items’ owner and reusing them; the exhibition aimed to raise awareness of “upcycling”, which generates new aspects and ideas and turns items into something more attractive.
We found a bunch of offcuts produced in material formation when visiting a factory of polyethylene foam material. For the other exhibition, we designed the sofas inspired by the impressive beauty of the offcuts’ cutaway. The successive idea from the exhibition gave us an opportunity to create these colorful sofas made with simply cut and gathered offcuts for this special showcase.
