In Tokyo today, in Barcelona or San Francisco tomorrow: pallets are the universal symbol of globalization and internationalism. Their design is simple, their material sturdy and their utilization functional – characteristics that inspire architects and designers to remodel, reuse and recycle them in ever more ingenious ways.
This volume presents numerous projects from around the world to demonstrate the limitless possibilities of engaging creatively with pallets: Used for buildings they undergo spectacular architectural transformations, while in art they are reinterpreted in surprising ways and cleverly deconstructed when utilized as a feature of interior design.
All of the creations have in common an aura of uncomplicated modernity that expresses itself in a stylishly unconventional esthetic. There is no doubt that pallet constructions are a fascinating and sustainable accompaniment to our times.
