The Misused
by Studio Liang-Jung Chen

Designed by Liang-Jung Chen.

The Misused elevates ubiquitous hardware to quality homeware.

As a multifaceted project that challenges the existing product design approach, The Misused serves as a participatory design platform that invites the public to upcycle everyday hardware items into sensible homeware products through a series of creative exercises such as research, reconfiguration, local material sourcing, democratic fabrication, and more. The outcome is a collection of both practical and thought-provoking homeware products that can be done by anyone, anywhere and anytime, with just a twist of creativity required.


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