Sustainability Aspects: Refurbishing combined with ecodesign making use of rejected components, old furniture, car interiors, aircraft wings etcetera to give products a new life.


Reestore tries to avoid traditional eco materials in favour of contemporary finishes, fabrics and above all style. Managing Director Max McMurdo is keen to stress that environmental consideration need not compromise the aesthetics and desirability of reestore’s products.

Examples are a desk made out of an aircraft tail, Chairs made out of car seats or shopping trolleys, lamps made out of building sites left-over piping.
