We met around a table in a far away country. Seven years later we decided to combine our skills and shared ethos. From there we created tohu&bohu – a project using art and sustainable design combining fair trade production with social engagement to create objects of basic human need.

I am Prisca Wuest. I am an artist who works in the public space and with local communities. I was questioning: How to involve people in a design or art production and encourage people to feel valued for their work and achievements and acquire new skills? I m working collectively with the local community and im particularly interested with conecting with people from different backgrounds.
I am Daria Wartalska and I am professional product designer who many specialises in glassware. I am currently doing a doctorate in sustainable design. The initial concept for my work derived from the question: How to re-use glass bottles as an alternative to recycling them. I mainly work with up-cycled materials, with ecology and social responsibility at the heart of their design.
