Design School Kolding — REDO Super Supermarket — Denmark
What happens, for example, when you dip silk ribbon into glue or melt lime-plastic with a fan heater? Suddenly soft leather has become part of a roll of toilet paper; cabbages are sprouting from discarded muffin pans and red wine bottles grow out of polyurethane plastics.
REDO Super Supermarket by Design School Kolding mimics a real supermarket. There are shelves, there is merchandise and there are shopping baskets. But a closer look reveals that the products are neither edible nor usable in a traditional sense. That’s because they are made of residual materials, supplied by a variety of Danish companies, and altered and REDO'ne into new beautiful pieces of artwork in the best supermarket style.
