Sava is a modular system for furniture building. Many camps provide refugees with only the bare necessities for living – walls, beds and food. Other important issues, especially concerning privacy and storage space are mostly neglected. Sava is designed to ll exactly that gap. The system consists of pre-cut chipboard, held together via cable ties, providing both stability and reversibility. Thanks to the cable ties, specialised tools and know-how are no longer a necessity, giving everyone the possibility to join the making process.

The concept includes instructions for basic furniture, e.g. a stool, a shelf as well as a storage box. The system opens more room to free experimental construction. The goal is to give the refugees a chance to take control of their environment and create something personal yet functional on their own.
