With Cubie we give a completely new function to old discarded army ammunition crates. Not only we disarm them of their inglorious past, but we revamp these unloved objects into fully functional tables. To complete the natural earthly look but also to increase functionality, we have replaced the original lids with covers made from discarded pallets. Because we use the original hinges, screws and locks, these tables are made 100% with reuse. We can leave them in their original color or finish them with VOC free paint to match any style. And the best part about them is that the inner space can be used to to store books, magazines, remote controls or anything else that would typically clutter the table.
Transfodesign is a creative organization that follows two main principles in its operation: - create design through transformation (residues, obsolete objects, natural elements, construction debris) and; - transform through design (people, work spaces, lifestyles, conscience, policies, societies, urban settlements). Everyone at Transfodesign is guided by the belief that everything can be given a second life by transformation. To us, design is a problem solving tool. Every person is a designer, every product and problem can be either defined or solved by design approach. Employing the already established Cradle to Cradle and the 3Rs (reduce, reuse and recycle) concepts, Transfodesign gives life to used goods to bring value designer items to the market. Our goal is to explore these methods and extend further their application. Therefore, we seek for the application of upcycling and creative reuse in architecture, landscape design, urban interventions, industrial design, production etc.
