The guys at REsign are really good at making products from a selection of recovered materials. Working with different materials allows to re-discover the value of things combining them in new objects with a high intellectual and symbolic value.
This time they make a series of 'new chairs' from unwanted/ broken old chairs found from second hand shop. An art piece in itself, just a single 'new' chair will definetely make a space special. The chair will become the focal point of an average space, a subject of conversation between family and friends.

A diploma project deals with the medication at home,ECAD design school graduate Celine Forestier has created a series of faceted pillboxes on a multilevel plinth, with each level representing a different day of the week.
The original intent: to adopt a careful attitude towards the drug. The questions and issues raised concerning the place of design and designer in the world of care and medication. Is there a medical design? When dealing with medical subject says can we talk about design?
The goal of the project was to change attitudes towards medication at home and ultimately de-stigmatize the pillbox. Says Forestier. The plinth and the pillboxes are designed to maintain a daily rhythm, make it easy for the user connect the day of the week, and time of day, with that days' requirements. "These objects in their aesthetic and sensitivity question the psychological link between the drug and its users."
