THE UPCYCLE COLLECTION

Je bestelt precies wat je wilt, je weet nooit wat je krijgt

This interior design concept is created socially with the excess materials from a network of thrift stores. This surplus becomes absolutely alluring by working with design recipes as a connecting factor. THE UPCYCLE COLLECTION focuses on tailor-made interiors for professional interior decoration with a total design. It also delivers unique items on demand for every space. This form of responsible (mass) production moves from a supply chain to a regional supply circle. 

And yet each item is unique. This not only creates a celebration of styles and shapes that are broadly recognizable. The variety of different furniture also ensures that there is a suitable and attractive item for everyone. Custom-made cabinets become works of art, Color Families become living worlds, and usage becomes a joy.

Because the collection is created from single pieces and incomplete series, items can easily be replaced or supplemented, for example in case of breakage. Glassware or crockery and furniture collections can therefore endlessly be expanded with extra items purchased. Different color compositions ensure that every single piece keeps its unique character and at the same time is part of a family with a shared DNA. These compositions range from exuberant to neutral, from soft to vibrant colors, from safe to surprising, all named after family outings. A Color Family can also be custom-made at request. The products are made in inclusive circular workshops and the makers get fair pay.

A statement and utter consequence of designing no new (to be fabricated) products, but to design an alternative system that makes reuse exeptionally compelling.

A commendable play on the sign of the times with an extra dimension, a positive and sympathetic contribution to the environement and society.

It sounds almost impossible: affordable objects that feel like design, and are also entirely made of disposed products.

The new Upcycle Collection makes it come true.
