Materials
Corian, plywood, plexi & steel

Material are taken from off-cuts, repurposed from discarded display structures or leftover from previous projects build by various fabrication shops in Brooklyn, NY.

 

For a handful of years I have worked in fabrication, primarily in the window display industry for various high end fashion companies. I quickly noticed how most things we made were only precious for a month or so on average and then shortly there after disposed of. As a young maker with a minimal income and a growing interest in discovering new materials, I quickly became interest in salvaging the off-cuts of these material and discarded fragments of displays, reinventing them as my own. I decided to participate in The Salvage Lab, because I was encouraged to make something in this spirit.
