Recalculating Route
Maarten van der Wolf

In order to let our existence no longer be at the expense of our environment, we need to make changes in our behaviour and develop new ideas about a rich life.

As a designer, Floris Schoonderbeek feels the need to look for new habits and new products, for a nature-inclusive and high-quality existence. With a self-build camper as a mobile workshop, he has hit the road to search, experience and experiment with other thinkers and doers - in order to come up with new solutions. Recalculating Route makes the design process - and the search that precedes these solutions - visible. “By experimenting and doing, you learn to understand the technique and quality of the experience. You feel the sensation or experience a product can bring”, says Floris. This effect is essential in the positive behavioral change that should arise from the use of these products. In this way, a rain barrel becomes not only a functional sustainable object, but also a lesson in (rain) water use. And so the Botanictub shows how you can experience peace and luxury in a natural environment, while having a positive impact on that same environment. In short: a rich life through and in balance with nature. Recalculating Route is an invitation and encouragement to use our knowledge and skills in a different way. After all, change will not happen by following the old route.
