Césare Peeren is co-founder of Superuse studios, a new kind of architectural practice of ‘process architecture’, in that the design method is a process. The process involves experimentation and prototyping with waste materials to identify and uncover hidden functional, ergonomic and aesthetic properties. In the same way, the inherent qualities, properties, constraints and needs of the location, construction, neighbours etc. are investigated for opportunities for integration into the design.
Using these Superuse principles, Césare has designed products, public furniture, playgrounds, interior fit-outs for: large offices, shops and restaurants, renovations, houses and cities. All examples of how re-use can lead to hip and contemporary design with a new design aesthetic. As well as design, Césare teaches, lectures, gives presentations, conducts workshops and continues research in the re-use potential of waste materials.
