After having developed several remarkable repair techniques with different designers during the course of 5 months of Platform21 = Repairing in Amsterdam, we embarked on a repair adventure in New York to save and upgrade an old officer's home on Governor's Island.
Together with the public and supported by some incredible volunteers, we repaired crumbling ceilings using Tape Boogie Woogie, inspired by Mondriaan's famous painting. Daan van den Berg brought new life to the chipped walls using a new transfer technique. Lotte Dekker restored and upgraded broken china with Bison Kintsugi and Heleen Klopper fixed holes in carpets, curtains and textiles using her Wool Filler.
