overtreders W builds timber fieldwork station for harvesting weeds

 

from earth to table; a concept demonstrated in overtreders W’s design of a timber-made, mobile fieldwork station consisting of a field kitchen, a drying cabinet, a harvesting bench and two workbenches. the modest yet functional construction was designed especially for the ‘weedgrocer’, who explores turns unwanted urban vegetation including nettles, or goose grass into edible herbs.

the designers at overtreders W completed the fieldwork station for its first use during the summer exhibition that took place by the lake at the paleis soestdijk. all pieces were designed as hand carts using locally-available materials common in the netherlands. the douglas-fir construction is put together to form a small shed in which the weedgrower can work while being sheltered from the elements.
