Furniture That Helps Fight Poverty

Furniture That Helps Fight Poverty

Curro Claret has come up with a simple way to produce affordable furniture. Utilizing discarded material found on the street and his own creative design (a central metal piece that acts as guide), homemade furniture has become an important element to Spain's new homeless apartment sharing concept. The key is the simplicity of Claret's metal piece, which allows the final maker full aesthetic control. Claret believes that giving people an authentic art making experience also helps to boost self esteem. Cost cutting benefits are also clear. Metal pieces designed to help produce other types of furniture will soon join the fold, furthering Claret's project and its overall potential. [Design Boom]
