Can it still be interesting if a designer creates a design with a discarded object that keeps it’s former function? Is it still upcycle design if it’s used in a completely new design, having that surprise factor and saving an object from ending up in a landfill?
Yes, I totally agree with this approach. I want to introduce this mix of chair and cushion. If we use any type of old or discarded object giving then a new design but not function it is still upcycling. My question is: is it comfortable ?? because we lost the functionality of the chair , looking for a new sort of seat, that doesn’t look pretty comfortable or even save. But…design is also art and versatility , so why not this creation.
