Our own column on old electric devices for Recupel* on national television.

For 8 weeks long productionhouse deMENSEN invited us to imagine new ideas with old electrical devices. We created different inventions with old devices, to inspire the viewers with some ideas for the weekend.

With some humour and a twist we made a sock-dryer, dinned with our own raclette machine made from an old iron and even went to a wellness with our home-made vegetable-streamer!

Recupel vzw organises the collection and processing of discarded electro-appliances in Belgium. Each manufacturer that brings an electro-appliance onto the Belgian market is legally in charge of the collection and processing of the discarded appliances.


Sep Verboom

The Belgian creative Sep Verboom (1990) is at once designer and social entrepreneur, less concerned with the objectification of the result, more with the context in which it takes place.

‘Too often we measure success and profit in terms of economic values. What happened to the importance of people’s well-being and health of our environment?’

Through his Livable® platform, Verboom brings together partners as diverse as their geographies: from the Peruvian Amazon to Indonesia, and from local governments or commercial companies to NGO’s.

Verboom graduated with a degree in Industrial Design (HOWEST) and in Sustainable Development from (VIVES) both in Kortrijk (BE).

His collaborative approach has been internationally recognised, with numerous expositions and awards. In 2018 Sep Verboom won the Belgian Henry Van De Velde Award for Young Talent. In 2020 his commitment to socially engaged design earned him the prestigious title ‘Designer of the Year’ by Biennale Interieur.
