    FUNCY

    “packaging - furniture - packaging”

    NFP

    Advice and suggestions from; "CENYC", "o2nyc", and "Rainforest Relief"

    Problem

    The density of urban environments is a well established dilemma. One of the practical problems resulting from density of urban livings is the efficient disposal of waste. With the population of city-dwellers increasing, the amount of garbage produced also increases. In New York City “packaging” is 1/3 of the total garbage; discarded furniture in New York accounts for more than 200,000 tons each year, constituting a significant potion of the city’s waste.

    Solution

    FUNCY is a ready-to-ship workstation, and contributes a logical solution to waste problems by reducing packaging waste. The FUNCY packaging is not thrown away, but is turned into the accessories of the work station.

Art doesn't have to look ugly to be smart!
