Sustainability Aspects: An exercise in how to deal with discarded furniture and resources. Discarded chairs end up refreshed and bright for a whole new life

The result

Re-Imagine is a project born out of questioning our resourcefulness and our attitudes towards waste. It builds on the Studiomama’s interests in expediency and re-using the existing, and speaks of our ability to see the potential in the overlooked and unloved.

As with Pallet Project (look here for their, sometimes free, work), there is a message contained in ‘Re-Imagine’ and that is to inspire and encourage us to look again at the unloved furniture in our homes, streets and markets and to make it anew. This is not just a sustainable approach to design and making, but a social one too; through working together with local craft people and pooling resources we can re-imagine the second-hand and redesign our everyday surroundings with our own touch of personality.

Studiomama show sthis new series of bespoke furniture tilted ‘Re-Imagined’ at the new design show house in the heart of Soho called ’19 Greek Street Gallery House’. The founder Marc Peridis vision is to show design which focuses on craft, excellence, sustainability and aesthetics.

The textile design is by David David design, and produced by Gabriel one of
 Europe’s leading suppliers of furniture textiles. Gabriel has versions in their Gaja collection that are mode of New Zealand Fern wool and Cradle to Cradle silver as well as EU-ecolabel and Euko-Tex 100 silver certified
