End Up by The Salvage Lab | An exhibition to change mindsets
Changing mindsets regarding the amount of usable materials thrown away every year.
Challenge: Presenting luxurious objects solely made from salvaged materials during the New York design week when all important players in the design industry are visiting the city.
Outcome: An exhibition acting as a conversation starter presenting work by six up-and-coming designers made only from salvaged materials.
The Salvage Lab, created by Charlotte Sunnen, presented its first exhibition End Up in May 2017 during the New York Design Week. One-of-a-kind pieces of furniture and objects which have been conceived and brought to life by some of the most exciting up-and-coming designers in the field using salvaged materials ranging from isolation foam and porcelain to reclaimed plastic. The show created a unique moment to reflect on the value of what is constantly, unquestioningly discarded and the endless possibilities for rebirth into the exquisite, the exclusive, the unanticipated.
