From trash to design. 

Experimental architecture and design studio.

Trash Design is personal experiment, where we resorted to materials, especially those that have already been made for a specific purpose and then forgotten or discarded. Thus, we have come to current topics, which today we call recycling, “upcycling” and reuse. Getting to know the materials did not start in the usual craft way, but with processing, changing usability and new possibilities of use.

We again gave value to discarded objects, and the whole design process can be described as an experiment with materials.

Today, we work with a wide range of craftsmen who, are involved in the process of transforming materials into the final product.
