About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

Albania is a small country where from more than 20 years the industry of production is missing and all the needs of the market are accomplished from the imported production. There is a gap of design and possibility of choices due to the fact that the market is furnished from almost the same providers. Unemployment is in a large scale and nature is underestimated.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

After a 6 month period of market study and surveys we decided to create Design by Pana on November 2013 as a social enterprise that would be providing her own designs, interior solutions,furniture and accessories production, by up cycling reclaimed wood , old pallets and garbage. We have 3 main rules in our business: To have our own designs and production. To employee people from marginalized groups. Eco friendly.
