ARTWORK FROM OLD FILE FOLDERS

An artwork made from recycled plastic! It’s made from old file folders. When the Hague based insurance company Onderlinge ‘s Gravenhage switched to a completely digital database they didn’t know what to do with all the old file folders. We’ve transformed 2000 old plastic file folders into a unique installation in the center of their new building. It consists of 1000 pixels that make up their logo of two hands when looking from the ground floor and a human head when looking at it from the 1st floor. In line with their company vision of putting the human central in their daily work.
We hope it will inspire everyone to rethink the concept of waste. Our prime minister liked it during the opening ceremony!
