Re-Used, Recycled, Re-Purposed

Working with found objects and materials can be both challenging and rewarding. I am so happy to see more and more people design with an awareness to the environmental issue, sending the rest of the world a meaningful message. I applaud the following designers who rediscover old and unwanted pieces by revealing unique ways of seeing something existing in a new light.
RE-USED: Boris Bally incorporates used traffic signs, subway maps and champagne corks into his hand-fabricated furniture:

Transit Chairs

NYC "Map" Transit Table

BroadWay Armchair

Small Square Transit Tables
RECYCLED: NottyPooch recycles used billboards into their colorful and durable products:

Bifold No. 36

Storage Bin No. 57

Long Wallet No. 1

RE-PURPOSED: Renew Fabrics re-purposes old textiles and gives them new life by adding hand-printed patterns, making them truly one-of-a-kind:

Hand-Printed Jersey Fabric

Hand-Printed Light Weight Orange Cotton

Hand-Printed Purple Dots On Blue Cotton
