Beckmans College of Design + The Red Cross

28 Okt, 2009 | Sofia Hulting | 0 Comments

Aspects of sustainability and integration in the Million Program residential areas in the outskirts of Stockholm are in focus when Beckmans College of Design will create a pop-up store for the Red Cross in Skärholmen.

The students in Advertising & Graphic Design have worked with concept ideas, while the students in Product Design have worked with interior decorations and remake of objects given to the Red Cross. The Fashion Students have taken clothes and fabrics given to the organisation,  remade them and created something new. The result is a mixture of innovative ideas of what a store can be, how it can be designed, and what can be sold in it.

The interior decorations focus on simplicity, sustainability and flexibility with interesting solutions. During a presentation at the college recently, the students also showed ideas of how to give new value to objects by simple redesign and how to make something out of all the clothes and fabrics that are thrown away because of some defect; shoes have become more personal with applications, scarfs and curtains have become blouses and dresses, and jeans have been taken apart and interpreted in a new way.

All of the products have been produced with sustainability aspects in mind and can easily be manufactured by people from different cultures and who are part of an integration project in the Stockholm suburb Skärholmen. Some of the ideas will become a reality this coming spring when the Red Cross opens its pop-up store in the centre of Skärholmen.
