Collect, select, combine, construct, register. We put together some of our hobbies in
this project that grew up during the last few months in a very natural way and without a specific purpose.
Every Tuesday in an area of Barcelona
called Eixample, people leave on the street, objects and furniture that doesn’t work
for them anymore. We collect what seems interesting to us and we store everything
at our homes. It can take months till we finally come up with an idea that turns these objects into actual furniture.
In this case, a selection of rough materials, glass panels, mirrors or bricks; combined with day-to-day objects, create decorative pieces that also work as furniture, fulfilling both, functional and aesthetic needs.
