We are used to waste and waste. Re-news proposes something different. It is a homemade product with recycled materials.
Re News is a paper bin made with recycled newspapers. It is an object that tries to make that material a longer life cycle, since it is normally thrown daily. Furthermore, it is also suitable as a paper container for recycling purposes. Re News is not a conventional product, it is an object that you can do by yourself downloading the instructions from the internet.
Asians develop many of their common home tasks kneeling down. The hip is positioned in such a way that makes a correct back position possible to be held with no struggle at all. With T, and thanks to its 15 degree inclination, the hip remains in the same position, giving the people who is not used to that position the chance to get close to it. On the other side, in the original position, the hip is lying on the feet, generating a constant move. This is called dynamic ergonomics, that enhances a position to be held for longer.
Mainly using already produced parts, by just designing a joint in brass to make it movable, Mobile is a lamp that gives a warm and changing atmosphere to the room.
Using as many joints as you want, Mobile has endless possibilities and could be as big as the space requires.
The smoking prohibition in London and its consequences really made us focus in one important aspect: people were standing in front of pubs smoking and drinking. Thinking about why were there no interventions made for this practise to become more comfortable, we realized that in the center of the city you can’t find a bench. The sidewalks are quite narrow and the people flow is normally intense. Normally, a bench occupies and requires a certain amount of ground space. It is mainly because of this that the London Bench was designed.
London Bench is designed specially for London, taking its aesthetics, needs and conventions into consideration. It’s not a classic ‘where to sit’ bench, but a bench to lean on. Since people are still standing up, the transit of the sidewalk is not broken.
Only two components are needed to produce the London Bench, since they are modular. The main leg, that is suitable for both ends, is made of smelted aluminum and it is attached to the ground using four screws. For the leaning surface, there are two measures: the individual and the 3pax measure. The wood is varnished or dyed in green.
Project made with Paula Jiménez.
Made by two materials, Underline is a chair that plays with the light and an almost invisible part of wood with the striking and really noticeable metal part.
LMP is a versatile, easy to produce, to ship and to assemble lamp. It is made by an easy die cut, wasting almost no material. Being cardboard, it is shipped unfolded and in planes, making it possible to be shipped bulked. It is really easy to assemble, it just needs to be folded following the pattern drawn in the cardboard.
LMP’s versatility comes from the chance to place the ‘wings’ of the lamp in several different ways, allowing the lamp to generate a straight lightning or a warmer enviroment.
A is a Home Office hypothetically made for IKEA, trying to make it coherent with their LACK collection. It is a quite useful and adjustable furniture piece that works on small spaces too. It is built from two pieces, the drawer, tied to the wall, and the table, wheeled. When both pieces are placed together, it looks like a single item.
Edwin is a fully repairable and sustainable fruit squeezer. Some time ago, products that accompanied us were long lasting and reparaible, made of natural and sustainable materials. Nowadays, actual electrodomestics have an expiry date. Several reasons like programmed obsolescence or irreparaible designs make the products easily spoilable, adding that it is almost impossible for it to have a second life or a enter a proper disposal cycle. Edwin was born from the intention of producing everlasting electrodomestics.
Edwin is an electric squeezer made of wood and ceramics. Its components are easily replaceable in case that it needs repair. This way, it is the user who can make Edwin to become everlasting. In case Edwin needs to be disposed, its components can be disposed separatedly for their proper disposal.
Edwin is made from basic geometric shapes, making it formally neutral and adaptable to any enviroment. The relation between the user and the product is really important, making the user help to make the product’s working life longer.
