Description: 

Delete’s Waste recycled products are manufactured by recycling and reusing materials created at Delete’s demolition locations. The unique design objects made from waste and scrap by the designer brothers Juhana Myllykoski and Johannes Stenberg will be sold through the Waste-online store opened in July 2017, as well as Waste pop-up stores in Kyläsaari, Helsinki. The materials for the products are found at Delete’s demolition locations.

Main activity field:

Main results: 
  • Every year, a great deal of materials resulting from demolition activities are generated at Delete’s working locations;
  • Some of the demolition locations contain objects and goods or materials that can be taken into use after just a quick clean. For others, a new product may be created by shaping and combining the object so that something completely new is produced;
  • Ecological recycled products, Trash Design and Industrial Design are of interest to interior architects and enthusiastic home decorators.
