studiomama: re imagined chairs

‘re-imagine’ by studiomama‘re-imagine’ by london-based studiomama is a project born out of questioning resourcefulness and attitudes towards waste. it builds on the interests in expediency and re-using the existing, and speaks of the ability to see the potential in the banal. by encouraging users to re-look at unwanted furniture in our homes, streets and markets, a sustainable approach towards design and making is implemented.

  • Utterly inspired. I’ve been trying to think of something to do with forlorn chairs I see in skips virtually every day. Every time I tried to imagine how to transform them I hit a mental block thinking most were beyond help, but you’ve done it. Brilliant!
