Emil Lagoni Valbak, from Aarhus School of Architecture created Plunge, an Eames referenced armchair made from an old TV reclaimed from at Roskilde Festival, suspended on four plungers.

Also coming out from Aarhus School of Architecture is Left Hanging by Anne Kruse Rasmussen, a table built with scrap wood rescued from a demolished building that playfully defies gravity.

Martin D. Christensen, a student from Aarhus School of Architecture, was also a winner with his ‘Bulb’ chandelier – an ode to the fading incandescent light bulb. This piece is made from 48 burnt-out lights.

By simply thinking twice, Danish students were able to demonstrate how taking a DIY, fresh and lateral-thinking approach can tackle complicated problems through simple solutions.
