The Ideas Lab
The ideas Lab is a Contemporary Makers Collective and a creative and innovative work space in one. The collective is drawn from the fields of Art, Photography and the Construction industry. Their main aim is to promote the use of recycled materials as a viable and functional alternative to newly manufactured items.
Their Facilities include a fully functioning workshop where they manufacture bespoke items as according to the commissions received. From turning a few sheets of MDF into a fully functioning DJ booth or repurposing a bass drum into a mobile disco light, they have the tools, facilities, experience and talent to build the most amazing high quality creations.
Where possible, the materials used to construct the structures came from waste materials either sourced from skips or building jobs. For example, one of the structures they created was made from trampoline frames clad with natural straw. Given its circular shape and wave shaped roof pitch, the result was affectionately titled the ‘coco hut’.
This piece was created using recycled materials, including the mirror glass. All parts came from various skips and recycling facilities around Sussex.
