The Mangosteen Project, a public art project we launched to recycle fallen trees from the typhoon. We used the power of product design to bring broken wood back to life as a chair. As a result, the broken wood has become a creative symbol, witnessing the relationship between people and trees before and after the storm. From the neighbors, from people who struggled to possess the tree and carried the wood, and people who rested on the wooden chairs. Unlike the damage caused by typhoon Mangosteen, the broken wood symbol has brought a bright and uprising image to the community, allowing people to see the optimism of the city's rebirth.
