Re-imagine chair by Studio Mama

For Stepney Green design collection

 

Salvaged from near an East London studio was furniture and chairs, found by Nina Tolstrup. They were stripped back and the upholstery changed along with a coat of paint added. The resourcefulness is a key element within this project and is well displayed by the designers of the thought process.

 

The transformation when an already put together product is available can be a lot greater than completely designing and building a new item from lots of parts. Although building from scratch allows you to decide on shape and form, using an old piece of furniture like this allows you to have lots of freedom within a boundary of the chairs frame, this is why the designer has been able to select bright and comfortable parts which now increase the aesthetic and appeal overall.
