Superuse exhibit in Shenzhen: Trash to Treasure LAB

Trash to treasure lab shows the potential of waste for design and architecture. It includes stacks of available waste material flows in the region of Shenzhen. Next to this, the lab displays inspiring examples of design with waste by Superuse studios and several tools that help to apply the materials for designers.

The material on display is a tiny fraction of the vast volumes industry produces and currently generates little or negative value. The series of designs by Superuse Studios prove there’s a huge creative field to be explored and the potential for new value both economically, socially, and for our environment.

Their waste service desk helps those who currently seek more valuable application of their material and invites everyone to start designing the circular economy.
