‘repair is beautiful’ by brazilian designer paulo goldstein began with the idea of solving frustration. a broken object delivers frustration because it doesn’t achieve its functionality, but the same principle applies to a broken system that caused the financial crisis, which has affected our lives since 2008.

 

in a time of uncertainty, taking things into our own hands and having the feeling of control back can be very therapeutic. the project aims to give back this feeling of control – by scaling down a major society problem to a human size and projecting problems upon broken objects that can be repaired through design and craftsmanship. the final outcome is a collection of intriguingly repaired objects imbued with new meaning and functionality. the once rejected objects reflect the environment that created them and call us to question our society as a whole.
