Within the framework of the ‘Limits to Growth!’ exhibition that took place in the summer of 2018 at the Grand Hornu site in Belgium, OpenStructures commissioned three designers/duo’s to each develop an OpenStructures compatible work from their unique perspective. Instead of three objects each of them came back with a whole family of extremely playful, versatile and inspiring pieces.
During a collective hacking workshop they then laid hand on each other’s work: disassembled and recombined the parts of one another into numerous hybrids and hacks, hereby demonstrating how ‘new’ forms can emerge from existing components but above all for the sheer fun of it.
