Initiated by Droog, UP is an investigative economic model that aims to increase the value of dead stock through re-design.
An alternative to recycling and disposal, UP treats leftover goods as raw material for creative re-interpretation in order to bring leftovers back into circulation.
Studio Jenske Dijkhuis was asked to brainstorm on a couple of materials and find new applications for these. For this process ikbenmooi was asked to help and join in, assisting in both the design and execution phase.
Studio Jenske Dijkhuis chose to transform old trespa desktops into a garden fence, referring to the materials use in many building projects. The typical urban material is now used to create a garden or balcony fence that creates a city skyline at night.
