Superuse, Where Recycling Meets Design

If you like to hugg, you might also like to join this new online community Superuse.org of ‘everybody interested in inventive ways of recycling’. The Dutch 2012 Architecten together with Suite 75 have created a huge online pin board of Polaroids, each featuring something recycled. You can upload stories and vote others so that the most popular ones move up the front page (similar to Hugg). Very useful are the searchable categories. An interesting post we’ve found so far is a kind of windmill parts cemetery of obsolete cracked bits waiting for someone who will hopefully reinvent them and save them from going to landfill?! There’s also a beautiful lightweight modular house made from recycled cardboard and a funky lamp made from old atlases by Bomdesign. Oh, and the Kapselhotel where your room is a lifesaver capsule from 1972 swimming in the port of Den Haag but they might move location… ::Superuse.org
