Free Furniture Factory

Bureau Detours were invited to do a project for the cultural festival, Festival de Wereld van Witte de With in Rotterdam. They shipped their relocatable workshop container called U.S.E. (Urban Space Expander) from Aarhus, DK to Rotterdam, NL and in only two days, they unfolded the U.S.E. station. They built hangout area and opened a workshop with the purpose of producing free furniture for the urban environment of Rotterdam.


People passing by could carry the furniture off to a new spot in the city, where it would make sense to U.S.E. it. In this way the U.S.E. station provided the city with new urban furniture, on the terms of the people of Rotterdam themselves.
