Work in progress
In developing the KLINIK project, we propose to give a new life to leather goods, giving them a new design, a new look that saves them whilst renewing them.
The range of uses is wide: applying unexpected touches and add-ons brightens up your item, strengthens its weaknesses by hiding a hole or stain. Similarly, a repair piece can replace a broken element, such as a covering piece or a strap, and even change the use of your object: for example, by installing a link (a fastening tab), your bag turns into a backpack, and a pouch into a handbag…
AWA’s creations of unusual jewellery and of transformation accessories are based on the principles of recovery, diversion, repair and communication.
AWA is bringing of a new way in design which, by combining familiar elements and current techniques, improves and transforms an object into another. We design “enlightened” accessories open to the possibilities of individual combinations that do bear values mixed between the past and the future so as to live in an eco-friendly present.
Reconditionner des pièces de maroquinerie en série
Far from striving to get back to the original form, AWA’s approach represents a freer and more creative alternative to an identical repair, which is basically impossible, or very costly, complex, and laborious.
Far from striving to get back to the original form, AWA’s approach represents a freer and more creative alternative to an identical repair, which is basically impossible, or very costly, complex, and laborious. A well thought-out and fun customisation is a useful act that can also generate a wide range of inspirations, a way of prolonging a relationship through an object that has become unique again, combining an eco-responsible gesture that contributes to our resources’ preservation.
Patches an elements
Pour AWA, l’objectif à plus long terme du projet KLINIK est de pouvoir reconditionner en série des articles en cuir, afin de créer des nouvelles collections à base de pièces existantes.
