The panelling of disused ÖBB wagons comes from materialnomaden. These pioneers of circular design see the built environment as a resource that can adapt to constantly evolving uses and needs. With the goal of promoting circular processes in the building sector, materialnomaden investigate the re:use potential of found materials, which they ‘harvest’ and put to new and often surprising uses. materialnomaden specialise in the component reutilisation of dismantled buildings, which are procured online in the re:store or in pop-up stores on site – and find many more new uses in this way.
