Contaminate NYC is pleased to present Social-Unit, an exhibition dedicated to Dutch designers Wouter Kalis and Corinne De Korver. This is the third and final show of the series dedicated to the winners ofOneHundredDays.us, an international juried-art competition launched by Contaminate in the fall of 2011, which challenged artists to create a project inspired by the principles of sustainability.  This exhibition will showcase Wouter’s and Corinne’s design piece Social-Unit, winner of the competition for the Economic Track.

In Holland, homeless people are being sheltered in single rooms of approximately 16 square meters. Aid organizations, such as the Salvation Army, have progressive goals for the homeless they accommodate. Their aim is to reconnect them to society. In sharp contrast to these positive goals are the interiors of the facilities. In many cases, the interiors are old, broken and too large for the space. Wouter and Corinne, founders of the Social-Unit design studio (social-unit.com), devised a solution to better align the Salvation Army progressive goals with the interiors of the shelters with simple criteria in mind: it had to be easy to clean, space saving, not very expensive and very strong. The team wanted to add an extra basic condition: creating a positive emotional experience of space and its surroundings.  The design for the cupboard bed is a combination of a sleeping compartment and a storage space in 3 square meters. It is produced out of recycled consumer plastic waste such as bottle caps and beer crates, mainly polypropeen and polyetheen. Wouter and Corinne have designed the bed in such a way that it can be manufactured using very simple woodworking techniques, such as sawing, milling, cutting and drilling. It is manufactured in social working projects that provide simple day routines for homeless and drug addicts, thus adding an economic and social value to the process. The production of the units in social wood workshop provides a feeling of contribution to the participating individuals and increases their feeling of self-worth and confidence. It forms an element of the process of reintegration into the labor market and into society. Instead of emphasizing the problems and needs of the homeless they offered them a home and focus on the potential and the possibilities of the Salvation Army and their guests.
