iF PUBLIC VALUE STUDENT AWARD 2016

This project is about behavior change and process design for a specific area of the social- and the ecological environment. We want to keep relationships with resources and fellows in mind. It‘s not just binding wood it‘s also a bridge for binding the society. The Open Bridge project includes the prototype shelving product itself, which should be built with easily-accessib.
The basic use of the OpenBridge is to hang it off your picket-fence and to put things on it that you are no longer in need of in a public area. The essence of it being that one man's trash is another man's treasure for poorer people who use or sell these little treasures.

Our project is about behavior change and process design in a particular socio-ecological environment and it helps when many people join: ”It’s not only bonded wood and turning one mans trash into the others treasure, it is a bridge for the binding of the people in our society and a chance to give our resources new values.” Precisely for this reason we are very pleased that we were awarded with the “iF PUBLIC VALUE STUDENT AWARD 2016”!
