How can we recycle materials to create functional and innovative pieces of furniture? The creative students of the Kolding School of Design and Aarhus School of Architecture are taking on the challenge, certainly proving that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. On show at the Think Twice exhibition at this year's Copenhagen Design Week, check out the designs that these young creatives are proposing to remedy the issue of growing, excess waste.

Malene Lund Rasmussen created this funky seat made from knitted plastic bags. The material add some color to an old, classic chair while saving some bags from polluting our landfills.

Anna Karnov Pedersen‘s Ace of Spades lamp turns a disused deck of playing cards into a stunning lighting solution.

Made by Katsuhiro Kanzaki, Mushroom is a biodegradable and fully recyclable stool made from scrap cardboard tubes, paper and cotton strings.
