Unwanted Toys

Unwanted Toys is an exploration of furniture surfaces made using scrap and waste material.

The materials have been processed, altered and rearranged in a new form - the top of a bench, the legs and frame of which are specially designed and built to form the new, elevating context, raising questions of what defines an object's value. Unwanted Toys is a project that asks questions about the nature of design, prompting the user to consider what defines aesthetic value and how value is affected by placing waste objects in a new context.
