Refunc adds value and purpose to otherwise disposed materials.

By only using waste materials Refunc challenges the way we look at art. What defines the art – is it the material from which it is made or the shape of the material that sets the definition.

Dennis Oudendijk and his collective Refunc have a main focus in their work – they want to reconnect the people and the material and give a broader understanding of what the material can. To do this, he uses his background in architecture from TU Delft.

People have a presumption of how the different materials should and would act. This way of thinking is challenged in HUB where the function between objects, components and spaces are shifted in contrast to the classic design approach where form follows the function of the material. This allows the spectator to view the installation changing.

Refunc uses waste materials in their installations to bring new life to an otherwise useless material.

This taps into the thought of sustainability and the limiting of our waste. Their aim is to try to achieve an endless lifespan, a circular way of using resources, where anything can become something else.

About Refunc

The collective Refunc wants to change your way of thinking. By shifting functions between objects, components, or spaces, they are questioning the standard design approach where form follows function. They try to achieve an endless lifespan, a circular way of using resources, where anything can become something else.
Refunc builds pilot projects in architecture, interior design and public space.
