Giving A Second Life To Unused Design Samples
Arts and design companies band together to help design students work with real materials
Many architecture and design offices are familiar with the feeling of having hundreds of different unsolicited product samples laying around the office that were sent to them by client companies. On their own, they’re cool-looking the first time you see them (hey, who knew that there was a granite called ‘Stormy Night‘?), but their use seems only ephemeral and momentary. But an initiative called Save a Sample! seeks to give these fragments a new life in design students’ projects.
