The Survivor Sofa Story
1.6 million tonnes of furniture and bulky waste is thrown out of UK homes every year. This staggering amount mostly ends up buried in landfill or burnt in an incinerator. Conserving and reusing the furniture would save valuable resources and provide affordable items to local communities. So where are we going wrong? The Survivor Sofa Story follows a small team of designers as they do battle with waste using design as their primary method of attack. Featuring, Sebastian Conran, Mark Shayler, Sebastian Cox, Urban Upholstery, Camira Fabrics and Ella Doran.
Uncovering stories old and new along a once industrial riverside path in Greenwich, steeped in history, not just of Tudor Kings and Queens but of those who lived and worked along the river.
