Can sustainable design thinking
help us develop new furniture
CastAway Furniture proposes and develops a new aesthetic language to embody the
conceptual and physical implications of waste in our lives.
materials found always dictate
the evolution of the design process;
this approach offers a model that can be used
in multiple circumstances and with
different materials each time.
Having developed a sensibility for the beauty of unused and abandoned materials, my purpose and wider intention became to showcase design resources and opportunities where we generally see only waste materials
The result is a collection of challenging objects that comprises a critique of society, highlights the issues of waste production and disposal, but also offers a vision for change.

“Adhocism is the art of living and doing things ad-hoc—tackling problems at once, using materials at hand, rather than waiting for the perfect moment or ‘proper’ approach.” Charles Jencks
my modus operandi is a never ending problem solving and creativity exercise, which has no design limits except for the ethical commitment to the recovery the unexpected.
