Amplify is a service concept that aims to generate a sustainable consumption culture by increasing the functional life of obsolete electronics. Repurposing, repairing and reusing are the three main actions the users can do at amplify. By doing that, the amplifiers will gain knowledge on how to manipulate electronics, will feel the satisfaction of recovering their obsolete electronics and, consequently diminish the exports to developing countries. One of the outcomes of the project, was a physical model of a fan made with some vacuum cleaner components, as well as instructions on how make it.
