We+ developed Link, a research project that explores the new possibilities of discarded building materials in collaboration with SEMBA, which designs and constructs commercial buildings.

Link stool is made from discarded building materials such as wood, metal, and bricks coming from the demolition of commercial buildings as well as mock-up materials produced in large quantities during the planning and design stages.

These materials are crushed into small pieces and solidified with different degrees of granularity. The rough grains are used as materials that create patterns whereas the fine grains are transformed into pigment, creating unique looks.

This project has been longlisted in the seating design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
