trash_design is an upcycling manufactury in Vienna and a department of the Dismantling- and Recycling Centre Vienna (DRZ) – which is a socio-economic facility treating e-waste. Socially and ecologically sustainable products are designed and handcrafted in the studio. The materials used are mainly obtained from electrical and electronic waste in Vienna. Therefor washing machine drums turn into tables, stools and lamps, door portholes of the same machines turn into sandblasted bowls in which you can also bake a cake for your friends. Electronic circuit boards become wall clocks and rings, earrings and necklaces, but also give an extraordinary touch to cufflinks and tie clips when covered in resin. Circuit boards, floppy disks, LPs and computer cases live a second life as notebooks and diaries/filofax. At trash_design you’ll also find small accessories and presents such as keychains made from RAM, keyboard keys and discarded plugs. Every single piece is handcrafted in Vienna together with long-term unemployed people. A visit at the door-to-door workshop, store and showroom is always worth its effort, but also the webshop offers new products every time you visit.
A special service for companies, organisations and major customers is a furniture rental service, where you can rent washing machine drum tables for your event. But also custom made trophies, awards and individual give-aways are manufactured using e-waste according to your requirements.
