Giving new life to forgotten things, the Bespunk exhibition at Workshopped will feature furniture and other objects re-imagined in black.
It sounds like a bit of a crazy idea, but Dr Spunk (AKA Alexander Lotersztain) has coated the objects in a (very scientific and technical-sounding) polymer, which offers tear-strength resistance and waterproofing qualities.
So, with items like garden chairs, and sofas on show, and all in black, it already sounds like something awesome to get along to – but wait, there’s more!
The team at Workshopped tell us you can bring your old, tired items in to Workshopped to be Bespunk’d. They’ll ship it off to Dr Spunk and you’ll get it back with a new and exciting look.
Alternatively, you can ask for a particular item to be Bespunk’d and Workshopped will source the item for you.
Things that can be Bespunk’d:
- plastic if treated or old
