Roma Romance – Adding value to mass produced objects

09Jun11

I’m off to Sofia Design Week, where I will be quite busy giving a workshop, a talk, show a new project with Designmarketo and report for Core77. I am particularly looking forward to the workshop, as it addresses the Roma Community in Sofia.

Interested members of the community will be given mass-produced everyday objects and furniture in order to create something new from them. Whether it is just adding certain stylistic elements, or changing the object completely into something entirely different by also altering its function, is up to the participants. The aim of the workshop is to create a range of objects that will then be exhibited and auctioned in public. The money generated from this »value added design« will be going to the Roma community.

Workshop: 10.-14.6. in a Sofia Roma Camp • Subsequent Exhibition of the Workshop Outcome: 15.-17.6. in Central Mineral Bathhouse • Public Auction of the Objects: 18.6. in Shishman Street
