Plans and Exhibition
DIY furniture made from invasive plants is trespassing into our living rooms to infect us with new definitions of domesticity! Our cities, after all, are homes as well, assailed due to globalisation by the uncontrolled spread of many invasive species. The plants are there to unveil the nature of endless economic growth, which is contributing to the destruction of our living spaces. Instead of burning them or spreading fears about their destructive power, we have transformed the wood from invasive trees into a line of DIY furniture and used it as a tool to develop new circular economies both in the city of Ljubljana and elsewhere.
Chek out our catalog with plans: Online view & Desktop printer. For the version, printed on the invasive plants paper please drop us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with a short description of your plans of use.
The exhibition and the catalogue were conceived in cooperation with the Centre for Creativity at the Museum of Architecture and Design.
