Through the use of „discarded things“ - such as remnant material from industrie and manufactories, discarded materials„ rubbish“ - seemingly useless things should be made usable again. Bearing in mind the social criteria these products thereby developed should be sold also by job creating organizations or similar institutions. The production of “clever”, “beautiful” and “useful” designed objects which awarded a prize conduces to the environment and is a contribution for employment promotion.
The aim ist to discover and uncover the so-called „hidden meaning of things beeing thrown away or chucked away“ („der verborgene Sinn weggeworfender Dinge“). The seemingly useless and disposed-off things should be re-used to create new objects. The range of required developments stretches from decorative articles, furniture, clothes/textiles, to various other accessoiries.
