New Design Ireland – Remake Design Network : Shabra Tables

 

As humankind guzzles its way through the Anthropocene, the Oil Barrel has become an iconic encapsulation our global carbon footprint. REMAKE Design Network’s new Innovation week event has its finger on the pulse; as 8 Dublin based design studios display 8 coffee tables, reincarnated and up-cycled from oil barrel lids donated by the Shabra Recycling Centre. This virtuous league of local designers have been regularly translating artifacts from our wasteful economy into desirable homeware using inventive & sustainable product design. The venue also houses a heart-warming clutch of home grown Irish designers, their studios and their work – making the Green in this Good, Green and Gorgeous gathering, dare I say it: a forty shades more resonant.
