El Recetario

El-Recetario.net is a collaborative digital platform focused on research, experimentation, and waste used for the construction of furniture and accessories for Habitat, where the community of creators shares what they do and how they do it, learning from it and collaborating with others. It is an open content repository composed of “recipes” for objects, furniture, spaces, and systems construction from the reuse of discarded materials. Each “recipe” contains step-by-step assembly instructions, detailing the ingredients and tools used; the knowledge and techniques necessary for its construction, where each user decides how to share what the person has made.

The contents of el-Recetario.net are open to anyone to use, but anyone can contribute by altering the design to make it their own. By using another material, modifying the dimensions, or simply using a different type of joint or finish. The latter implies that everyone, through practice and basic skills, can become a designer and maker of almost any element of the domestic and/or urban habitat.

el-Recetario.net is an initiative of Makea Tu Vida, a non-profit association interested in open design tools and strategies for the reuse of waste, promoting collaborative work as a decentralized method of learning and empowerment.
