• 12:00-17:00 The group Flokk till you drop has been in residence at the Design Museum for the past 3 months.
The aim of the project is to raise awareness of consumption and the amount of clothing that is being donated to The Red Cross. What happens to these items? What kind of information is imbedded in one tonne of clothing? How can design add value to this material? These and questions are among many that the group has been looking into.
On the last day of their stay the group will offer selected pieces of clothing for sale as well as new items they have created from broken textiles. Profit from the sales goes to The Red Cross.
The project is a collaboration between the Red Cross, The Icelandic Arts Academy, University of Iceland and The Icelandic Textile centre. The project is sponsored by The Student Innovation Fund.
