ScrapHacker Patriotism

Just like the faintest glimpse of a Volvo car in a foreign movie makes me all giddy with patriotic pride, I find that seeing Swedish stuff/people/anything featured in international magazines also unleashes a smug rush of through my Swedish veins…Add some scraphacking action (and a dash of yellow) on top of that and i´m  hooked…

Last week design savvy online mag Dezeen and eco cred site Inhabitat both featured the newly remade factory-turned-supercool-ecofriendly-facility of the school of Stockholms Stadmission – a local independent actor in the ”social good” business (with a variety of practices including hosting homeless shelters, organizing of 2nd hand re-sale business of donated clothes & furniture, remaking donations to new cool stuff c/o business branch ReMake).

Both the articles mention that the new space features a lot of different ScrapHacks, such as salvaged glass to build partitions. I couldn´t help but also notice the sacks hanging on the left hand side of the picture below, they seem to be part of a hacky construction involving the kitchen cabinet doors – no? I would have enjoyed some more details on the ScrapHack aspects of the build, but the rush of patriotic pride of this cool project keeps me going for now…

Here are some pics from the new space, which was designed by firm CoDesign (all pics from Inhabitat)
