2008, Experimental design, ES

Disechos’08 was a three day workshop about design and creative reuse, using as a stage the International Furniture Fair of Valencia during and after the celebration of the furniture exhibition HABITAT’08.
There was an abundance of carpet waste produced by the fair and our aim was to estimate the impact of that carpet and its effects. We then compared the waste material to everyday objects.

In this case, we thought that a doormat would be an effective and smart solution. After a bit of research and access to real data and some calculations… This was our conclusion: If we raised this specific problem to the exhibition HABITAT’08, we could have produced enough doormats to give one to every house in Valencia.
