Re.Form Upcycle Challenge in Helsingborg



Community Builds was invited as an "expert" to assist 1 out of 4 teams for an upcycle challenge initiated by Re.Form in Helsingborg in November. Below is the result.

The challenge. Each team of 5 will upcycle provided furniture into a new outdoor piece. The furniture was hand picked by the organizers and presented to each group. Each group got 2 chairs, a toss up piece ( ours was this huge dishware cabinet ) and a mirror. We have two days to design and build the new work.



Day 1. Tear down and brainstorming a new public park bench. Many designs and ideas flowed. There is always a bit of anxiety at this stage of the creative process. After a lot of discussion and input we had a plan.

Day2. After a good nights rest, the team came back blazing. The creative juices were flowing and we were working as force that could not be stopped! The design solidified and time to get it done.

At the end of day two we had accomplished building a beautiful park bench that is both whimsical and classy. A difficult combination to pull off!



Team 2 ( not the most creative name) worked together and I personally could not be any prouder of the amazing work we accomplished. Thank you Shabnam, Oleksandr, Rashid and Gabbi HATS OFF TO YOU ALL !
