Dutch Design Trash for Reuse

Dutch Design Trash

What you see here is actually our trash. At last year’s Dutch Design Week (DDW) some 250.000 visitors generated a lot of waste! Such as thousands of wristband leftovers (used for entry tickets). These colorful / wonderful wristbands are made of polyester and can be transformed in many ways (by weaving, melting, shredding, felting, sewing, joining, etc.) into something new…

If you have an idea to reuse these wristbands in mind (?) please sketch your idea and send it to make(at)burg-halle.de

PS:
For the third time, BURG is exhibiting in Eindhoven at the Dutch Design Week (from 22 – 30 October). This year‘s exhibition 9 Days of Making is part of the Burg Roadshow program and with a focus on materials and making.
