In the exhibition area at ÏMA Design Village /Kreuzberg,  At the centre of the exhibition was the sculpture „1 Cubic Meter“ where an original Kreuzberg aldi-shopping-cart-house was rebuilt with DETOX wallpaper developed by FUNDAMENTAL SCHOOL. The installation proves that exhibition waste of a 100 sqm exihibition-space can be reduced to 1 cubic meter. FUNDAMENTAL SCHOOL showed selected products of Hermann Miller, Solarbier, Method, Eizo, Dyson, Solio and many more.

The FUNDAMENTAL SCHOOL exhibition installation reduces waste by 99%:
100 m2 exhibition area equals 1 m3 waste

During DMY International Design Show in Berlin a space was created with the aim of highest material efficiency and zero waste. The widely-spread shopping cart house, a symbol of our consumption-led society, stood as model for the exhibition architecture. The shopping cart house was copied by using wood slats and was stabilised with Barns, a DETOX wallpaper.
