Blurring the line between art and design, Second Life explores the potential of upholstery waste. Using fabric offcuts that would otherwise be destined for landfill, Eugenie Kawabata presents a series of intriguing, sculptural, watertight vessels. Second Life is part of this year's Melbourne Design Week.
