LUM! by Lisa Spengler and Moa Hallgren (Berlin) with “REMÖTIL – textile chair”

May 17, 2010

REMÖTIL- textile chair objects:

For our Diploma project in Textiledesign at the Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee, we are working on our object-project REMÖTIL at the moment. From donated and found old clothes and thrown away furniture from Berlin’s streets, we are creating a furniture-object collection. The used textiles and collected fragments are getting back to function and a new life by using handcraft techniques. We are fascinated by the principle to be inspired by used things with a personal history and to give the waste a new value. For the BERLINORDIK 2010 – BRIGHT GREEN DESIGN exhibition, we used the recycling principle of our diploma to create a textile chair collection.

What does sustainability mean for me as a designer?

To preserve the value of forgotten

What does sustainability mean for me as a consumer?

To recycle

What does sustainability mean for me in general?

To reflect and react
