For DGTL FESTIVAL we designed the Revolution Factory, where plastic cups from the festival are recycled and turned into garbage bins on the spot.

In Refunc tradition we re-used parts of former installations and re-combined them to facilitate the project.

Refunc is responsible for the machines which gather the cups and the look and feel of the total factory, the making of the bins is a project by Dirk van der Kooij from Zaandam, who makes very impressive products.

For Retriever a Media Database Company, we designed and build a new kantine/office space. The problem was the small size of the room so we decided to make it even smaller, by making a space in a space we made the office feel bigger.

Materials used are leftovers from the mould of an art piece , plastic parts from a manufacturer of fishing boat interiors, perspex leftovers from a plastic company that went bankrupt, a glass plate and some lighting fixtures.

Bordeaux, 2011-08-01

Invited by Eric Troussico, the curator for Evento 2011, we designed and build a mobile unit consisting of two old Peugot pickups and  two trailers. The mission was to create a mobile cinema/radio/workshop/theatre station. The main problem was to build the units in such a way that the construction was considered as a load and not as a structural part of the car, meaning we could take it of with 6 bolts…

For Urban Campsite Amsterdam we were asked to create a mobile sleepingplace or something else.. by chance we had a leftover skigondola which we used as polish wodka and coffee bar during the opening.

Seeing how kids liked to play in the unit we decided to just adapt the doors and leave it as is… to play!

TERSCHELLING , 2013-09-26

For OEROL 2013 , sense of place, we designed, built and managed 4 projects, which consists of 3 landmarks and a mobile waste lab with workshops and demo’s, all made from locally available materials.

To create an overall character we deciced to use used buoys all over the island and create one language in recognition of the festival.

- a portable dunescape from pallets, with building system for future use for the festival

- a super landmark from used buoys, a clear cut line 650 m long to mark the ‘green beach’

- a wrapped buoy and a car.. connecting the maritime industrial with the rural vocabulair

- a guiding flow of buoys towards the entrance of the main festival ground

- a superpixel light installation from used pallets and agricultural plastic

- to link everything together we used sand graffiti to give a sense of place

- a salvaged container, combined with a used beach pavilion, turned into a ‘wastelab’

st Petersburg, Russia, 2013-07-14

For ‘Orange Days’ festival in st Petersburg Refunc was asked to activate the public space at ‘New Holland’, commisioned by curator Alesssandra Pradin

We chose to work with readily available materials such as pallets and cartyres. On site the plans changed every day until we got a grip on the site, hence the name ‘General Dynamics’.  We discovered a new way to stack pallets and turned a dead empty corner into a dynamic space.

REFUNC i.s.m. Arno Scheper

‘Panopea Generosa’ – een architectonische belevings sculptuur

In Enschede bouwt collectief Refunc i.s.m. audiovisueel kunstenaar Arno Scheper een zinnenprikkelende belevings sculptuur, waarin de bezoeker zich kan overgeven aan een erogene totaalervaring gebaseerd op de eigen fantasie.

De samenwerking tussen Denis Oudendijk van Refunc en Arno Scheper is speciaal opgezet voor Gogbot, waar Oudendijk als architect met industriële en harde materialen werkt, is juist Scheper verantwoordelijk voor de “software” en de publieke ervaring in de weke delen. Dit alles versterkt met een live soundtrack van Renzo de Man.

Uit dit een uniek samenspel, zal de ‘ Panopea Generosa’ ontluiken. De zwarte pulserende en kloppende blob, in de volksmond ook wel zeepiemel genoemd, is zowel in- alsook uitgang van en naar de harde transit bar gevuld met vuige fantasieen .

project by Denis Oudendijk , Arno Scheper, Renzo de Man and Frank Niessen impossible without Jeroen, Marjoor Lijntje, Mara and Gogbot.

Part of the fase 2 interior for Milgro are these 4 office cubes Our client requested that they were made from ibc- containers, these were our leftovers from Manifesta 9 combined with wood from the ‘ Bijenkorf’.

As usual for Refunc we needed a hard deadline, which means onsite designing whilst building and testing all at once.

Changing tables, putting up curtains, finishing lights and creating more functional space for meetings and logistics…

Budapest, Hungaria, 2012-09

Hungarian ‘Placcc’ festival invited REFUNC to investigate the urban space workshop with local waste materials. Together with Gergo Kukucska and a team of participants we developed URBAN SCANNERS made of used garbage bins to discover the public space from a different perspective. The public is invited to join this game and filter their everyday surrounding and interact with the continuously changing installation. We use the changing setup at different locations in the centre of Budapest to let the public interact in their own ways.

Warsaw, Polen, 2012-08

Research on experimental usage of unused advertisement structures We noticed several ad poles in Warsaw not used full-time, unused or even abandonned at different locations inside the city. As public big-scale advertisement is one of the characteristical  elements in Polish public space and endemic, we notice these constructions as chances to create living units in unusual places. Examples of extreme living or working can be the result. Minimal space with maximum efficiency and incredible views at unusual places. We want to use the chance to activate unused spaces, objects, views with relation to the direct surrounding. All materials used for building could be found locally, for example washing machine doors to become a facade.

Warsaw, 2012-07

public interaction installation Targowek is an outskirt far from Warsaw’s centre where life is tough and people come to live as housing is affordable. The local city government and NoMuda asked us to activate this unused public zone and develop an urban play installation for everybody of any age and background. Social interaction and a place to meet and communicate was the domain. We got inspiration feedback from locals passing and by living in this not very developed area but with lots of public space. After trying complex ideas we chose to stay close to the ground and develop a 2Dplus Deck with a big surface for everybody to hang, play, and chat. NoMuda found a sponsor to provide us with 200 half-size Europallets.

2012 Architects and REFUNC together designed and build the interior of MANIFESTA 9, the European biennal of contemporary art 2012 in Genk, Belgium A serious amount of local waste materials, researched by 2012 architects, combined with the functional desires of Manifesta were starting points for the desig and the onsite improvisation. Waste materials ranging from car parts of the local Ford plant, through pallets and advertisement materials to IBC water tanks were used Several teams worked on different design-solutions and created a whole from all fragments and zones.

Breathing House installation with re-used billboards

In order to activate an unused building in the center of Katowice, we re-used large-scale advertisement material and made facade elements which breathe by means of air being inhaled and exhaled and so changing the shape of the installation.

We engineered and produced hand-sewn breathing ‘organs’ consisting of big-scale cushions, blower, timers, and stretchable covers of billboard material tobring the facade alive. Sound and light broaden the activity.

The list of gratitude is endless:
