Ten Green Modular Shelving
Ten Green is a modular shelving system, constructed simply from local recyclates. The design stemmed from an ongoing collaboration with the Coach House Trust, a Glasgow-based charitable trust that runs all sorts of ecological schemes and occupational therapy workshops. The brief is to find re-uses for the large amount of material the Coach House Trust collects for recycling, thereby tightening the circle of material re-use, keeping it local, reducing environmental costs as well as generating revenue.
The shelving system is designed for very simple construction, appropriate to the Trust's facilities such that it could in the future be produced through one of their workshops. It uses reclaimed bottles and wood, and no adhesives, thereby becoming extremely simple to disassemble and reconfigure or reuse for other means.
