Guerrilla furniture made from trash

“This innovative guerrilla furniture is a pop up urban project that aims to enrich forlorn public spaces with unexpected street furniture built under the cover of night. While most people in Paris are asleep, there’s a group of designers wandering around the streets in the search of useful scrap. Furniture designers Duccio Maria Gambi and Mattia Paco Rizzi’s Chapitre Zero initiative salvages wooden pallets, unwanted furniture, and assorted pieces of wood to create cool furniture throughout the City of Lights.

In a sort of nocturnal performance, the team of designers first search for unwanted wares and materials, plan the design to fit a site and then set up their own one night atelier. They bring torches, cordless power tools, handsaws, and plenty of screws to have everything they need at hand. Everything from unwanted furniture to scrap that Parisians discard is considered as construction material with endless possibilities.”
